Sunday Stamper - Week 353 - Freeze Frame

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy sunny spring Sunday to you all!  Thanks for your fabulous blue makes entered into last weeks challenge.  The new theme this week is... PUT A FRAME ON IT You can interpret the challenge how you like: be it an altered frame, framework dies, stamped cartouches, a scribbled frame around the page... the choice, it be yours!   To join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy.  Add in the theme AND some stamping *this is THE important bit guys, please remember your rubberstamps!*  and then hop back here, leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you.   If you haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or by emailing a small res.pic to me or by leaving me a link to your Pinterest or any other photo hosting site.  The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 18th April 2015.  


I had a lovely day yesterday; I was demo-ing at Jo Channon's Let's Create in Tattershall - all things Melting Pot and Studio 490.  Thank you to Jo and Mark for having me and to Jo's Mum who always keeps me well fed and watered too :O)  And... a big thank you to all the lovely ladies and gents who came along to see me getting inky and messy.  I think we have a few new Melt Pot addicts too.  During the day I was demo-ing different Melt Pot techniques and popped together a few finished samples... my entry this week is one of them.


The base is a Studio 490 Art Part rectangle frame with an Art Part heart a-top it.  The heart was covered with Tim's Wallflower paper and then a beeswax collage over the top with a smidge of Mica to make it a bit blingy.  The frame was painted black, sanded and then Walnut Stain DI was blended over the top to make it a bit more vintage.  And because Art Parts are so robust, they will take a whole lot of distressing and beeswaxing.  I made a rose using the same papers and dipped it into beeswax to give it a lovely shabby vintage look and did the same with the sentiment which is a Studio 490 stamp (yes, it is the only stamping on the project but... it counts lol)



Much mirth and merriment here today!  A few weeks ago I got busy in the greenhouse and planted lots of seeds... all of them have poked their heads through and now it is time to "pot on"... which is what I shall be doing once I have stopped waffling here.  I keep going on about how I love this time of year... and I do... Spring is most definitely here Chez Sheridan and it is making my heart happy!  Whatever you have planned today, I hope you have a good one!  Thanks for looking... TTFN

Beeswax is so brilliant and once again your creation is just fabulous. I thought I had a Burpless come through but alas none of mine have sprouted, but those tomatoes have. I'll get more seeds next time I go out cos I plan to grow a couple outside too. X
