Oh Mr Darcy

I've been having a play with my new Indigo Blu stamps (if you're looking Neil they're not new - had 'em for ages', cos you know I'm sticking to my spending ban right?!!) Ahem so... little play, and I made a hangy whatsit.
The hanger has been painted with lots of Fresco paints in neutrals, browns and blues, then out with the stamps.
I've randomly stamped the crackle from the Alice plate in white, then the netting and lace from Mr Darcy along the top and bottom. The swirl from Poppy Meadow has been embossed over the top in Distress EP. It's been a LONG time since this came out of it's box, but it's given a great shabby feel. Birdcage lady and silhouettes have been stamped onto tissue paper.
My beautiful wooden love birds are from        Crafty Emblies and have had a touch of gilding flakes. It doesn't show up too well here 'cos guess what - no sunshine again! The sentiment is from the same stamp set and has also been gilded. 
The rose is from Crafty Emblies and it's far too nice as it is to alter.
So this is me getting in touch with my feminine romantic side :-)
I'm entering this into the following challenges;
