Framed Scene

Time for another Crafty Individuals challenge, the theme is Create a scene and I couldn't be happier!

I created my scene using stamps from a mix of brands. From Crafty Individuals:  the birds (CI-329 ), the foreground grasses (CI-207) and large tree (CI-209). BTW Crafty Individuals are having a 'Tree Fest Week'  and offer a 20% discount on their tree stamps, including their latest release which has made my wish list!

The frame of my d├ęcor piece is copper coloured metal which I embossed with a stencil and further wet embossed with gold powder for an antique look. The inspiration for this is trying to recreate a painting with its frame, just smaller! Why buy your wall art when you can DIY!

I am a bit disappointed with the colours and realise I need more colours AND shades of inks to achieve the depth of field I was after. All those inkpads need a lot of space though so it won't happen overnight...

I am also entering the WOW embossing powder, Penny Black & more, and Lisa.B.Designs challenges.

Hope you like my "painting!

  2. Gorgeous richness and depth of colour Christine. Might have to pop over to CI, I am a self confessed treeaholic, a scenes' not complete without one or two - and a fence.
