Ornate Ladies by Alison Hall

Hello Stampers! I've a little hanging piece to share with you today. I have used the fabulousDistress Stains which are currently on special offer on The Artistic Stamper website HERE.


For the base, I die cut an Ornate Frame out of mountboard, then coloured it with Broken China & Peeled Paint Distress Stains. I stamped the Calligraphic Mat 1 with Black Archival Ink, then swiped over the top with Picket Fence Distress Stain. It looks very white when it's wet, but once it's dry, you can see the colours & stamping again. To finish the background, I stamped some flourishes around the edge, using Broken China Distress Ink.

I stamped two images from the Garden Plate 1 onto glossy card, cut them out & coloured them with Distress Ink. I edged them with black ink, then attached them to the base, adding some lace.

I punched two holes at the top & one at the bottom, using a cropadile, added silver eyelets, a piece of Ideaology Link Chain, & an Ideaology Pearl Bauble, attached with a Jump Ring.

Thanks for looking,
Alison xx
