Altered Frame - Football

Here's a project I made for DH for Father's Day a couple of weeks ago using my new Football Fan stamps from Firecracker Designs by Pamela.

This is one of those frames from the Target ($25) Dollar Spot I picked up a couple of months ago. I haven't done a frame in ages so I thought I'd start with a cheap one, LOL! I traced it out onto plain white GP 110# cardstock and decorated it. All the images were stamped with Palette Noir ink and colored with SU markers (Garden Green and Summer Sun -- GO PACK GO!!) and Prismacolor markers.

I adhered it with ModPodge on the back ONLY (so the front is just the matte finish of the paper itself, no gloss).

The photo was taken last December when DH and I made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land (aka Lambeau Field) to see The Man (aka Brett Favre) play in person *at* Lambeau before he retired (I've seen him in Minneapolis a few times but it's just not the same. Viking fans throw beer at Packer fans when the puple ones play poorly. Yum.). As you can tell we are very, very bundled up in the photo (I'm not quite that fat!). If you wanna read about that adventure you can click here.

6 people made my day!:
