Nudes in the Frame by Alison

Hi Everyone! It's Alison here again, with my second piece of art for January.

One of the very first plates of stamps that I bought from The Artistic Stamper, was the Nudes plate. It has a beautiful set of images, and also some very useful words on it. You don't always need to use full images in your art, and I decided to use just the heads and shoulders of three of the images in a Mini Hanging Frame set.

First of all, I separated the frames, and took out the clear plastic and card inserts. Save the pieces of card to stamp on. I then covered the frames with the definitions tissue tape from the symphony set. I coloured the tissue tape with cool peri alcohol ink, then sealed it with a layer of multi medium, to stop the tape from peeling off.


I took three of the Nudes images, then stamped the heads and shoulders onto the saved card from the frames. It's easier to lay your card onto the stamps, to get the parts of the images that you want. As the card is a little bit glossy, I used Archival jet black ink.


I stamped some of the Words & Sayings from The Artistic Stamper, onto white card, cut out the single words I wanted, inked the edges, then added them to my images.

Finally, I re-assembled my frames, added some beaded trim (the ribbon was also coloured with cool peri alcohol ink), and a metal heart button.


I hope this has inspired you! Thanks for looking!
