Very Vintage

Today over on Flourishes Newsletter, Cindy is bringing on the Vintage look and feel. Now I am SO NOT a vintage stamper. However I thought I would give it a try. I wanted to make a gift for my mom with a picture of my Great Grandparents. She had it in this dinky frame forever and I have never cared for it. So here is her new frame..... I couldn't get a great picture since this is an 11x14 frame, its huge. But my mom LOVED it. :0) That always make the hard work worth it. hee hee

Now please be gentle in your vintage approval. I used the set Lace Edges and stamped them in creamy caramel around the frame. I added some double loop cream ribbon to the border and around the photo. I pulled the colors from great grandma's shirt for the purple. I did color a little bit of the lace, but left it mostly the caramel color. I went with I think its called the tea stain color look, now don't chide me if I got that wrong. lol Used several pearls around the border and on the flowers. I love this crochet ribbon, in fact I think I am just about out of it. hee hee Below is a close up picture of the lace border. You can see the pearls a little bit better there also.


I am pretty sure that Christine has a fabulous creation for you today as well! So give her some love! Hope you have a fabulous day!
