FWF: Stamped Photo Frame

It's Friday again, yay! For my Unity Friends With Flair entry this week I have not a card but a fun, hanging photo frame!

The frame was purchased at my local craft store and was a blank canvas calling out to me to be stamped!  I used images and a sentiment from some kits of the month to create a scattered floral scene directly on the frame.  I colored the images using Prismacolor pencils, again directly on the frame itself.  I must say, I was pleased with how well this worked. It was kind of an experiment and I wasn't sure what I was going to get!

Finally, I added a coating of mod podge to protect the coloring and adhere the sentiment and this cute wood veneer bird that I painted and distressed.

I hope you enjoyed this "out of the box" way to use those gorgeous Unity images. Thanks for stopping by and I'll catch you next time!
