Tim Holtz Stamps & Ranger Inkessentials Memory Frames

Tim Holtz Time Anonymous Stampers
I’ve wanted some Memory Frames for ages, but when I eventually got them I was afraid to do anything with them, what am I like?  I have seen so many exquisite projects on other blogs and  just didn’t think I could produce anything to compare.  But finally I have done something, which I will be happy to wear.
I’ve used a 2” x 2” Ranger Inkessentials antique copper memory frame (MEM21698)

I’ve  stamped, in black StazeOn,  Tim Holtz’s, Stampers Anonymous ATC  stamp Time (COM004) - £4.99,  onto a faint text print patterned paper,  trimming it down to size to fit the frame.  After this I used Plaid blending chalks with my finger to add a little colour. The finishing touch was a miniscule amount of Hero Arts Hologram micro glitter, which I applied apprehensively, praying it wouldn’t look too much, but  thankfully the result is quite subtle.
