Life through Rose "Coloured" Spectacles!

Over on Hels blog, the Sunday Stamper challenge is The Rose. I have been wanting to do this technique for a while.. so thought I would use it to make an unusual project today. I "borrowed" my son's 3D glasses he bought while seeing a film, used a book of rose pictures from a secondhand bookshop, and set about making my "rose" coloured glasses.
Over on Claudine's blog she showed a technique using the sticky backed canvas as a transfer technique. I used a scanned in version of two of the pictures from the book, and carefully cut them out to cover the lenses. I painted the glasses with Crimson Precious metal paint, and let them dry. I then added the " rose lenses" and added a bit of Prima bling to the corners.


Life is always so much better through rose coloured spectacles!
Thank you for the challenge, Hels :), and hope you like my different take today.
Hugs
