Stempelglede design team call

Hi guys, hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and new Year, it was such fun here, Tegan opened her pressies with such care taking ages!!!! lol
I've seen that   Stempelglede are doing a DT call and even though I don't  really stand a chance ( but a girl can dream) I just so wanted to try lol, while thinking of the DT call It reminded me off the  grunge collection I have from Stempelglede and so have used this collection on the frame,
I  altered this picture frame which my son gave to me with a picture of him and his girlfriend in, the frame was gold coloured metal and didn't really go where we wanted the frame to be so I set to work on it,

sorry the picture was a little difficult to get the light right, doesn't help as hubby bought me a new camera which I have to get used too as well,
anyway I painted the base with Gesso then after the first coat had dried added another, when this was dry I used a gorgeous stamp from the Stempelglede Grunge collection, I so love these stamps but this is the only set I have but so would love some more, so if any one knows where I can get some from please let me know, next I took the smaller border edge grunge stamp and with Memento ink London Fog and  inked the stamp around the edges of the frame,
Closer view of the two stamps used on the background, the memories die cuts are by Joy crafts,

I made the flowers using two of the flower stamps from the same collection, these I stamped with Memento Tuxedo black using first and second generation stamping to get a varied look, after cutting these out I slightly shaped them and layered them up just adding a small pearl in the middle,,
To finish off I used a couple of charms with the rings snipped off and some metal flowers I had in my stash too, the leaves are Dutch Doobadoo paper art leaves and I coloured them with silver metal rub I've had years, they slightly shine in real life!
The beautiful butterfly is made using a Magnolia Doo Hickey die cut and I used the same grunge stamp on this too, the body is a Tim Holtz Ideaology nib which again I covered using the metal rub,

Simon loves the finished frame, so that's good, he he 
So if you haven't seen the details of the Design team call already check out the DT call here,
this is another project done for halloween last year using the same grunge stamp in a completely different way, see why I find this set so useful lol,

wishing you a lovely New Year, with lots of fun, health and happiness,
hugs Liz xx

Happy New year. Your creations are Gorgeous Liz. I did see the DT call too :). Good luck. I am sure they will love this frame. I love the grunge stamp set. I had to get mine from Oz, don't ask how expensive that was!! I have not seen it since, but if I notice it I will message you. Take care Jen xx
