Santa`s Framed

After making 10 of the last post I needed a change so I gave this lovely stamp set Wishing You Cheer from SU a run. I made 2 different framed pictures. In this first one I used only one tree with the Santa`sAgain it is a $ store frame but this one is not a shadow box and does not have a mat. I stamped the images using Versamark with Black Disco EP. When this is heated it has such a great sparkle to it. I love using it. Thank goodness those bottles go a long way. I used spica pens to highlight the hat trim, scarf and tree.
After I had it done I thought the top left corner was bare. I tried a snowflake but it looked tooooo large so I ended up doing my 3 dot doodle all around the edges. I also used Zig 2 Way Glue to attach Diamond Dust on the Santas and the snow. I love that stuff....such sparkle.
For the next frame I added another tree and I like that one better.
Everything else is the same except I did not color in the tree. I thing it fits better inside the frame. No doodles either this time. Both panels are framed first with Riding Hood Red and then Black. I used the ticket corner punch on each picture.
I attached the panels unto glossy gold paper from Michael's. No name is stamped on the paper but it comes in 12 x 12 size and has a semi gloss sheen. I love using it. Just the right amount of gloss.
I am really late posting today. Had to run into the city to try to find more frames at the $store and could only find 6 in 2 stores. DH is going to the others tomorrow. I had some in but I really hate to give them all to him for his partners when I could use them for myself. Now doesn`t that make me sound selfish! Guess I had better rethink about just giving them to him eh.
Well off to teach myself to share. Talk later. Leave comments please they make me feel so wonderful. Have a great Halloween everyone.
