A Tranquil moment captured in a frame (by Debbie)

Good Morning. Rather than making a card with these beautiful stamps, I chose to make a piece of art to frame and display in my craft room. At the moment the walls are all white after being newly decorated and I've decided they will stay that colour as it feels a lot bigger to work in.
The lady is from Serenity and the branches and irises are from Tranquility set of stamps. I stamped the lady with Versafine Onyx Black and embossed her with clear powder then coloured with Alcohol Pens. I cut out the lady so I could add her to the scene. For the background scene I used Distress inks with highlights of white pen. The frame came with a mount and I stamped it with a paisley style stamp from Dusky Damask and embossed with gold powder and then rubbed with red guilding wax and buffed to gain a sheen. I have taken photographs as I worked to make the background and will add these to my blog today, Craft Flossie . Thank you for visiting today. Debbie xx

  2. This looks like lots of work Debbie, but really worth it. I love the shaded sun background and will have to pop over to your blog to see your work in progress pictures. I love the contrast of the bright sunny yellow with the vibrant spring green. The effect of the embossed frame looks great too. Elaine

  3. This makes a beautiful picture, and I have already visited your blog to see how you created it, which has made it much clearer. I love that colour of green for the background, and the sun just like a halo round the main image, all wonderfully framed by the foliage and Irises. I think the Dusky Damask embossed and gilded mount goes so well with the colour of the frame.

  4. This is going to look beautiful on your wall. I love the background. The hanging wisteria is gorgeous and rich. Very well done.

  5. The frame itself looks striking with all the subtle golden nuances & I particularly like the way the reddish tones are echoed by the image's clothing. Your lilypad seat looks very dimensional & the concentric circles background is very atmospheric, especially with the blossoms from above hanging down into that are. The scene setting with the irises at the base helps ground the whole scenario. I'm glad you're going to keep this one for yourself. Won't the white highlights you used look brilliant with the white of your walls as the backdrop?
