Design D.I.V.A.S. Group Challenge

Kristi, from my SCS Group Designing DIVAS is heading up our challenge this week. We are to create an altered item with a holiday theme – and that can be any holiday we choose.

For this challenge, I elected to (finally) use the antique satin picture frames my sister gave me. She bought at least a hundred of these to be used as name plates for her wedding reception.. then changed her mind. So I was the lucky recipient.

I simply found an image to fit inside the oval that had a Christmas theme. This stamp is “Christmas Dreams” from the Margaret Sherry Hedgehog collection of Penny Black Stamps. I used a holly stamp and red ribbon for an accent. Both images were colored with Copic Markers. Since I decorate just about every room in the house for Christmas, I’ll find a little spot to place this cutie.

Enjoy your day.. and thanks for stopping by.
