Pure Balm of Friendship
Hello everyone, today I have a bit of home decor to show you.....I have made this picture as a gift......a while ago my sister asked me to make a card for her to give to her friend (HERE) and her friend liked it so much she decided to frame it.....well I thought it was a great idea to make another one as a gift so here it is!! I am entering this into the following challenges; Stamptacular Challenge 181 has a theme of less is more, and Totally Papercrafts Challenge 134 has a theme of use your favourite stamp.
The frame is just a cheap wooden frame that I painted with white matt paint and it measures 7 x 5 inches. The backing or mount is just a piece of plain white card then I cut card and DP to the relevant sizes so they fit evenly. I distressed each element with antique linen distress ink and edged each one with a little vintage photo. The DP is from Melissa Frances and the stamp is from WMS - Rescue Remedies Set. I finished off with some pearls, lace and ribbon all from the Ribbon Girl.
Finally, an arty photo! I'm really pleased with how this has turned out and I will be doing some more in the future.
I am due to have my baby on Friday so I will be absent for a while. I have several posts scheduled so hopefully blogger will do what he is supposed to but I am afraid I probably won't be commenting for a little while.....so see you all again soon. xx
