I supposedly had to finish these funny frames a week and a half ago... but well... better late than never, right?! And here they are! I made 7! (click to enlarge)
All images are from Bugaboo Stamps, Jodie has an amazing creativity and sense of humor, she does wonderful images for us to enjoy and laugh and has developed several funny characters like Stella I like so much. I colored them with colored pencils and blended some parts with mineral oil. The sentiments are all hand written in Spanish but they are translations of the sentiments that come along with Jodie´s images, not only from the images I´m using here but from others that fit well with the message I wanted them to have.
What I did is a frame to stand at a desk (for example...), I found the pattern at Peet´s blog (another amazing crafter!) and used some file folders I saved from the bin at work some weeks ago... the patterned papers are from a very old stash I have, I finished them with some glittery touches (rhinestones, glitter glue, clear decoupage glue for glass effect) and faux stitches made with white gel pen. Here is the back view
My sweetheart gave them to his friends today and my funny frames were a success!!! I´m so glad they liked them because these crafts are unique and personalized (I did some research about the personalities and likings of my hubby co-workers before starting), and I made them just for each of them!
Thanks for looking!!!
