|The silver really makes Audrey shine!|
Every time I use this stamp my friend comments on how much he likes this image so I decided to make him a little piece of artwork to put on his desk. I also challenged myself to use the 'wrong side' of a canvas frame. I find it so hard to turn these frames round and leave all that lovely blank, clean canvas untouched, lol. Soooo, I turned my little box canvas over (its a 5x7 canvas) and stuck newspaper clippings all over the frame. I used mainly film reviews for this but had to add a few record and DVD reviews as I only had one paper to work with. Next I printed out a map of Hollywood and fitted that in the bottom of the frame. I added silver stars to some of the places marked on the map. Next made my film strip by cutting a strip of black card, then punching the holes with my Bind-It-All and then cutting out the apertures. I fixed a piece of acetate behind and voila - film strip. I stamped the lovely Audrey Hepburn (The Stampsmith stamps) onto the acetate and backed one frame with silver card. This was then attached inside the frame on sticky pads to raise it off the background. I printed the 'Where Dreams Are Made' and framed it with my computer and the word Hollywood was cut using an old Xcut Impress Alphabet with lots of added bling. To finish off I scattered a few more stars and bling.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
The Stampsmith - Travel (off to Hollywood)
The Cheerful Stamp Pad - Anything But a Card
Crafty Catz - Friendship (Create something for a friend)
