Last month for our Elusive Images Design Team submissions we were sent some beautiful stamp sets which each featured an elegant lady dressed in a gorgeous gown and these stamps were supported by lots of wonderful chandaliers, candelabra, fancy corners and others. There are three A5 sets in all and as well as being beautiful, there are some really useful and versatile stamps on each plate. We are all agreed on the Design Team that many of them would make beautiful Wedding Stationery or cards for the Bride, her Mother or the Bridesmaids.
For one of my submissions I decided to make something a little different from a card by decorating a little (6" x 6") wooden frame I picked up for £1.
I used stamps from all three of the lady sets together with stamps from Fancy Mandalas UA4SP0172 AND Diamante Delights UA4SP0192 to make the Grungepaper flower and leaves and Artistic Affirmations (another fab new set) UA4GW0343 for the word (which could also be a name). I thought the bottom of the chandelier stamp I used at the top of the frame looked like a lovely beaded curtain edging. I used various colouring mediums, including Studio Semi Gloss Paint, Ranger Dabbers, Viva Precious Metal Paint, Ranger Crackle Paint and last but not least Distress Inks.
The frame itself had glass in the aperture but I took it out and replaced it with a painted and stamped chipboard square.
I really enjoyed myself making this little frame and the stamps worked so well.
If you would like to see all three sets of stamps and our three 'divas' in all their glory, click on the Elusive Images DT logo in my sidebar which will take you to the DT blog. The stamps are all on display together with details on how you could perhaps WIN them so it's well worth popping over there. You will also find links to my DT buddies where you can have a look at the beautiful creations they have made with these new stamps.
Thanks for dropping by today and have a lovely weekend everyone. I'm off to my Daughter's today to have more Wedding Discussions. Blimey, things didn't seem half as complicated to organise when my Hubby and I got married nearly 38 years ago, Lol!
