Tando week: triple arch layered frame

Michelle is with us today and she altered a Triple arch layered frame beautifully using Crafty Secrets stamps.

To make my little scene I glued the three frames from the Tando pack together and triple embossed with wow metallic-copper-sparkle embossing powder.

I drew around the outside edge and the inside of the windows very lightly with pencil to establish the area for stamping.

The lovely Garden Girls were stamped to create a scene with the large tree from the set in the middle frame.

When the scene was positioned it was then coloured with coloursoft pencils and sansodor. The Garden Girls and the little table were decoupaged to give a little dimension.

I used the Tim Holtz small easel cut from mount board to make the frame stand after decorating with a few flowers and some flower pots I have had since forever.

It was fun creating this little window and have still got the window cut outs left to make a little triptic something or other with - great value particularly as you could make three windows like this if you didn't make the frame as deep........    Mmmmm what scenes could I create next?
