Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope all are well.
I've had lots of fun playing with these stamps and felt that I really wanted to showcase them up together in one - and what better way than in a frame for 3 images!
I found this little frame in one of big supermarkets, on sale for a surprising £2!
It was shiny red! Very nice, but did not go with anything in my house.....what to do? IndigoBlu it of course!!!
Using Goldfinger IndigoBlu cottage acrylic paint, painted onto the frame - as the frame is was shiny, it did not stay put, which was fine as I really wanted to have that red show through! A couple of thin coats did the trick nicely for me.
Once all painted, I roughed over with an emery board, just to distress it slightly and give in the look I desired, which was to have a gold frame with red showing through!!
The same look can be achieved by first painting a frame using the IndigoBlu PostBox Red, or Ruby Slippers Cottage Acrylic paints.
I stamped Becca, Caitlin and Dianne onto a cream stamping card using Versafine Vintage Sepia. Once dry, I added Distress Ink Walnut Stain, lightly with a waterbrush, giving shading to the faces. I distressed very lightly all around the edges.
I'm rather pleased with the effect! I hope you like it too!
Peace to all,
