Happy Friday and thanks so much for stopping by today! This week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog we are featuring flowers in our Fabulous Friday projects. I created this altered vintage picture frame from an inexpensive plastic frame that I picked up at the Dollar store. You'd never know it, would you? I removed the glass in order to take photos of my project to reduce the glare but will have it in the finished project.
I covered the edges of the frame with our aweseome 1-1/4" burlap ribbon using a hot glue gun (ouch, just a few burns!) and added a sweet bow tied from the cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon.
Next I created these three paper roses from the Typeset specialty DSP using my Big Shot, Spiral Flower die, Fringe scissors and Pansy punch. I sponged the edges with cherry cobbler ink to coordinate with my bow and break up the monochromatic feel of the frame.
I don't have too many 5" x 7" photos on hand so decided to add the sentiment from the Feel Goods stamp set with early espresso ink and will add a smaller sepia toned picture to the frame soon. I am pleased with how this turned out - I had the idea in my head and it turned out just as I hoped! That doesn't always happen... at least not for me.
For even more inspiration with flowers, please hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog here to check out what Rachel and Karla came up with this week.
