Fashionable Stamping Challenge - anything but a card

Greetings! I have really been enjoying the challenges at Fashionable Stamping Challenge. The new challenge, "Anything but a Card"
should be very interesting. Looking forward to seeing what each of you comes up with! For my project, I chose to decorate an unfinished white linen picture frame. I began by stamping shells in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto the frame and added the sentiment in Black Versafine ink at the bottom of the frame. The bathing Beaty was stamped onto Glossy Paper and trimmed and mounted to the side of the frame. I added tulle, ribbon, shells, pearls and butterfly stickers by Tim Holtz. All stamp images are by Oxford Impressions.

Please check out all the projects by the Design Team for inspiration. Can't wait to see your entry! Please remember no Digis and we must be able to see stamping on your project. Best, Yvonne

This is really gorgeous Yvonne and I can almost smell the sea air. Those images are beautiful and love the embellishments which really add to the seaside effect.
Hope you're having a lovely Sunday.
Hugs, Fliss xx

You can truly see the beach theme with your project Yvonne and the bathing beauty looks as if she is having some flirty fun.

All the shells are fabulous and what a clever idea to add ribbon and a butterfly everything blends perfectly. Love it.
