Well I am certainly fashionably late for 'Mask It' which is the latest Fashionable Stamping Challenge. Fellow teamie Claire was the inspiration behind this challenge. As we are a stamping challenge we do require some stamping on your project and no digis please, Our generous sponsor is Marina from Cottage Crafts with a fantastic prize for the winning entree. Please do pop over to FSC head quarters for lots of lovely inspiration from those Fashionettes.
I found an old picture frame which I white washed and shabbied up a little adding a touch of gilding paste here and there. I cut some chipboard to fit and painted with gesso then covered with Tim Holtz tissue paper, added some more gesso to soften the effect then I used some stencils to add the butterflies and swirls.
I tore some more tissue paper and decoupaged onto some mini frames adding more gilding paste and coated with crackle medium. I used some lovely stampsmith stamps for the inside of the frames and added a few embellishments to complete my vintage frame.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are not buried under an ever increasing mount of Christmas craftiness.
Have a Happy & Crafty Week.
