SweetStamps #62: Stamped Frame



Hello my sweet blogging friends!
I hope that you all are having a very creative week, joined by beautiful weather. 
Today we have another great challenge for you over at SweetStamps.

This weeks challenge is:
Stamped Frames

For this weeks challenge, I used two different SweetStamps stamps and a little bit of masking. 
I am LOVing the recent floral release, that I am trying to find new ways of using these stamps to their full potential. 

So the first stamp that I used was Cameo Lady, stamped it once and clipped out the center image. 
Then I stamped it again with French Roast ink, but I used the circle that cut out earlier and placed it on top.  So when I stamped it, I would only get the image of the frame. 
I then colored Parisian Bouquet with my TomBow markers, spritz with a little water and stamped it in the middle of my frame.  I really love how the colored image came out.
