Tiddly Inks Christmas Project

I finished a little Christmas project today using some digital stamps from Tiddly Inks and a $3.00 wood frame from the Wal-Mart craft section. (I know...$3.00!!)

Here are some closer pics of each image:

I used Copics to color the images and water colored the backgrounds with Twinkling H20's. The corners of each frame are embellished with mulberry flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used 3 different snowflake punches in the top corners of each frame. Of course I had to add some bling...pearls from my stash. The hanging frame was unpainted so I painted it red first, then black with some inexpensive acrylic paint and sanded some of the edges to distress it a bit. The red paint peeks out in some of the sanded areas.
The total cost of this project, including the digital images, was less than $15.00.  Hope you enjoy!!


  1. This is a gorgeous hanging frame Andrea, beautiful colours and embellishments. Your colouring is beautiful too. Congratulations on making it through the Blogging maze and creating a fab blog, it took me some time to get the hang of what to do myself. May I suggest that you also add a Bloglovin followers link for people who don't have a Google+ acct to build up your followers?
    Good luck
