At last, some crafting!

TGiF5 I have busied myself today altering a 75p photo frame for the Wednesday Stamper Challenge. The theme TGiF4this week is newspapers so I covered the frame with newspaper and watered down PVA .... I then coloured it with some distress inks.

Inside the frame I stamped the SA photographic  stamp for the TGiF challenge which is brothers and Sisters this week. I coloured the background using distress inks in a range of soft colours and I used a Paperbag studios stamp to frame the picture.

Finally I have 3d'd a few Stitchels flowers to add a bit of dimension.

Have a good weekend everybody!
