The new monthly challenge is up at Sweet Pea Stampers and this month's theme is "Frame It" - so basically to use some kind of frame on your creation.
I decided this was a perfect opportunity to play with my new Stampin' Up! Framelits dies. :)
And, just for something a bit different, instead of using a Sweet Pea stamp, this time I decided to have a play with a Ching Chou Kuik decoupage sheet:
I love Ching Chou Kuik's artwork and this image - September Rhythm - is just gorgeous. I'll be honest with you, I rarely do decoupage. In fact, I think this is the 4th time I'm ever done it. :lol: In general I find decoupage images tend to be a bit on the cutesy/chintzey side and that's just not my style at all. But there are always exceptions to the rule and Ching Chou's incredible artwork looks just as beautiful decoupaged as it does as a stamped, coloured image. :)
Mmm. Maybe I'll try "home-made" decoupage with some of my Sweet Pea stamps one ot these days... :)
