Yay! I'm on the WOW Design Team!

Hi, I have great news I made it onto the WOW (Words Or Whatever) chipboard DT, I have been wanting to tell but I had to keep it to myself, so over this week I'm be showing what I have created so far using the chippies.
I finished this LO off today, after starting it last night on the phone to Nay, we call it phone scrapping, that's not scrapping a phone, but there's an idea maybe an old phone one from the 80's lol!
Anyway sorry back to the LO, this photo was taken of Milly in the front garden on Christmas eve, I just changed the photo to vintage colours as the dress is very bright red.
I used Basic Grey Curio which I just love and has been sitting on the desk since late Nov when we got it in at Fred.
The lamp post and the cute gates are from WOW, which I inked in dark brown, then used Tim Holtz white puff embossing powder, then added some Glimmer Glaze (cowboy) to parts, then to finish off I sanded back the gates and the post with a file to give it a distressed look.
Close up of the gates, it was Linda's idea about hitting the brads with a hammer, which I just Love that look.
I would love to have a real lamp post in my garden like this one.
 
That's All Folks!
Thanks Gilly oxo
