Bloggers Challenge 105 - Alter It


Welcome to this weeks Bloggers Challenge, where the theme is Alter It. I know you've got supplies in your stash that are just begging to be altered, so why not drag them out, play along and link your project to this post, so we can all see them!

Personally I can't even tell you how long I've had this naked frame in my stash of alterables. As you can see, I photographed what was inside the frame as it had the information on the maker - Stamp Its. It's a magnetic paper frame, but the frame covering actually has a bit of texture to it. I wasn't quite sure how it was going to work for my stamp surface, but once finished, it looks kinda like a piece of material.

I used a beautiful Mandella stamp from Two Nancys Art Stamps as my image. Stamping in Grey, Rich Razzleberry and Black using the Depth of Field Technique from the TJNL. While I realize the technique doesn't call for Black Ink, I think it gives it a pit of pop. Once finished I sponged Rich Razzleberry around the edges. I had a hard time finding a picture, but came across one of a group of friends that was taken at a Stampin' Up! Convention a few years ago.

Details:
Stamps - Two Nancys Art Stamps
Ink - Grey, Black, Rich Razzleberry
Other - Frame, Sponge Dauber

Here is a link to my altered picture frame. I am feeling like it needs some bling now, so I will have to add some. The picture has a lot of detail and originally I thought that might be enough.
