Some Inky Fun with Creative Expressions stamps

Good Morning Everyone! Jane here today with an altered frame I made using some of the gorgeous new Creative Expressions stamps available from My Mum's Craft Shop. The stamp set I have used is called Steampunk Flowers and is available here. I started with a light coloured wood box frame and removed the glass and took it all apart before staining it with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I kept going until I had the depth of colour I wanted sanding it down in between coats to achieve a distressed look. When I had finished staining I stamped the flower with cogs over the frame using Archival ink.

I created the picture inside the frame by blending Vintage photo distress ink onto white card and stamping around the edges with Vintage photo and Tumbled Glass inks. I stamped the sentiment with Archival ink and then put the frame back together before adding the flowers. I made these by stamping onto grunge paper and colouring them with distress inks and heating them with my heat gun to shape the petals. I added a Tim Holtz ticket on a pin holder and some Steampunk charms from my stash, some paper flowers and some Butterflies and little stick on pearls to finish.
I hope you have a lovely Thursday!
