Layers of Color Altered Frame

One of my favorite things to alter are cheap wood frames from Michaels.  They make perfect gifts and are really quite easy to do.  For this frame, I used two Layers of Color stamp sets: Touch of Elegance and Christmas Verses.

I used Memento ink: Rich Cocoa and Rhubarb to stamp the damask image and lightly sponged the edges with Desert Sand.  Perhaps you can see the Goosebumps Shimmer I spritzed on it...  Love my Tsukineko inks and sprays!! 

Goosebumps adds nice speckled texture. In the center of each damask, I added a little pearl.

Since Christmas is really all about Christ...I added a Bible charm to the ribbon treatment.
I am considering doing a step-by-step picture tutorial if you are interested.  I am quite a simple stamper and this was very easy to do.  Just let me know :)
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
