 Today's challenge is to make a Stamped Frame. (If you prefer, you could make an all purpose frame! That way you could use it year round!)

Here's Sue's Tutorial on MFPSpeedyTV

I used the tree from the Please Snow stamp set and the sentiment is from Christmas Bridge stamp set.
The frame has a canvas cover that took ink very well; I colored the tree using Copic markers and embellished the frame with a multi-looped bow.  I sponged ink on the sides to give the frame some depth for the stamped images.  (Thank you to Sue for sending me the blank frame to use for my project!)

Please visit these DT members' blogs for more samples
