Getting Inky.

This is the the frame I altered at  the Craft Workshop on Saturday, which had been organised by my good friend Cazro.
We had a fabulous day with Jill   [Mrs Stampman] who guided us through some amazing techniques to alter this frame.  We were provided with a mirror  available from that well know furniture store, a bag of goodies to use on the frame and a CD to take home so we can refresh our memories on how to use some of the products.
Some of the items  we used were Moonglow shadow inks and Stampendous Frantage products.

To describe everything we did would take a very long time. We painted, stamped, embossed, embellished, got extremely messy and inky. It was amazing to see how everyone's frame looked so different even though we started off with the same things.
Towards the end of the day we made some toppers for cards, I will show you these later'

I decided not to put the mirror back in the frame, instead I have added a some metal pieces into the recess when I got it home..

 Thank goodness Mr Stampman brought along  a variety of products we used,  so we could  purchase as well, I am going to be experimenting with these in future.All available from the Stampman on line shop.

Jill I enjoyed every bit of my day, thankyou, it was crafter's heaven, you showed and taught us how to do some amazing things.
 Caz, that day out is sure going to take a lot of beating  9.30a.m. to 4.30p.m. of wall to wall crafting bliss.
This might just fit  the challenge  at  Rainbow Lady -'Lets get Inky'.

Also the challenge over at Art with no Boundries which I have just found for the first time.
the challenge is Anything Goes/A  Frame of Mind.
