Portrait in Time

Greetings!  I saw the Simon Says Challenge Stamp and Show today and saw it was to create your own background which is one of my favorite things to do.  I also mixed my elements to meet the bingo requirements of the Fashionable Stamping Challenge. I immediately pulled out some background stamps and started to play.


The background is created using a combination of the Music Score background and the Jumbo  Cling Holly Hock stamped over the background.  Both were stamped in brown ink.  The flowers were colored with a touch of glimmer mist using a waterbrush. I accented the centers with bronze glass glitter.

The edges were embossed using Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.

The focal image is the Cling Plume Portrait framed out in a Tattered Angels Timepiece frame. I actually embossed the frame with the Stampendous Aged Gold Embossing Enamel a few different times and then stamped in it while it was warm using the music background. Love how it textured the frame!

The sentiment is stamped inside a stamped tag. Distress Tags, Rose Branch Border

Have a lovely day!

Suzz

  23. Hi
    I certainly like the idea of the face within the die cut (I am assuming that is a die-cut).
