still addINKtive - Spot That Stamp Set - Forever Young

This week at still addINKtive we are playing "Spot That Stamp Set!" & the set that is being featured is "Forever Young".  This set features a beautiful tree, male & female silhouette images, a cute cuckoo style clock & a sweet little frame.

The frame reminds me of a pair of antique, intricately carved & handpainted frames that my grandmother cherished, which had very convex glass in them. I have used crystal effects on the inner section of each frame to replicate this shaped glass & then, once the CE was dry, added the embellishments on top.  The inner border of each frame has been coloured with a pool party marker.  The frames have been fussy cut & popped up on dimensionals.

A tip when you are covering stamped images with CE - heat emboss them first, as this will help prevent the ink from bleeding.  :)

So to play along with us this week, you can link up any projects that you have created using this set. This means either old or new projects with a limit of 3 links per blog or website.

We hope you can join us in showcasing "Forever Young" at still addINKtive!  You can check out the "still addINKtive team" tab under my header to find the links to all the Design Team Member's blogs.  My teammates have a fabulous array of projects utilising this stamp set to get you inspired.  :)
