WT270 Be Yourself Framed Art

Good afternoon All,
We are having the most beautiful weather here in Las Vegas: Sunny and 95! I just thought I would share with you today this framed art piece that I created for my youngest daughter's upcoming birthday. I had already made her card using this CTMH stamp set and I was rolling this idea around in my head for a few days. I wanted to do something kind of 'shabby/chic/trendy' ish...if that makes any sense! I started this on Thursday to go along with the Ways to Use it Challenge to use an edge distresser. I used my edge distresser on all of the layers of designer paper. I stamped the images several times in different color inks and then cut the clothing out and paper pieced them. This was very tedious, but I like how it turned out! Kinda like cutting out paper dolls! One thing that I like about CTMH clear acrylic stamps is that I could bend the words to contour the images. I put this in a regular picture frame so I couldn't use too much dimension. I also sponged the mat with pretty in pink ink. Here is my supply list:
STAMPS: Be Yourself (CTMH)
PAPER: Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Sahara Sand, Sweet Pea designer series paper (SU!)
INK & MARKERS: Chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, pretty in pink, sahara sand, so saffron (SU!)
THE REST: So Saffron wide grosgrain ribbon, punches (SU!); Nestibilities, Cuttlebug, edge distresser
Well, that's it for now! Thanks a bunch for swingin' by today! See you soon and Happy Crafting!!
