Art Creations Friday & Theme Thursday challenges

This is an entry for two challenges - ACF no. 30, which provided the background (http://artcreationsfriday.blogspot.com/) and Theme Thursday whose challenge is 'flourishes' (http://themethursday.wordpress.com/).
I distressed a piece of black cardstock and then glued the ACF background, inked around the edges with black ink, on top. The image of an angel, by Paper Artsy, was stamped in the centre. Two flourishes, by Hot off the Press, were then stamped in opposite corners. Mica, which had been edged with black ink, was secured over the central image using glossy accents. I covered some silver mesh with black acrylic ink and used glossy Accents to attach it to the other two corners. Brads/eyelets, coloured with alcohol ink, were fastened over the mesh, using my Cropodile, for the finishing touch.
