So Suzy Altered Art Featurette - Part III

Hi everyone. Monica here from Taylormadecards4u and I am back with my final post for my Altered Art Featurette.  This week I am sharing with you a Wedding Frame I created using a frame I found at a local thrift store.

A few weeks ago I found some vintage dominos at a used book store. I had seen other people alter these so I decided to give it a try.  The So Suzy Wedding Dress stamp and Groom stamp fit perfectly on these two dominos. Let me show you what I did.


I measured and cut out 4 pieces of card stock that matched my wedding theme. I distressed the edges using Walnut Stain Distressing ink. 


I cut out two pieces of script designer paper and stamped the paper using So Suzy Stamps Wedding Dress and Groom.  Once the ink was dry, I distressed the edges using Walnut stain and adhered them to the domino. I then added glossy accent and put aside to dry.


I stamped one of the squares using the Audrey Hepburn So Suzy stamp and another one with the Wedding dress stamp. I then adhered all 4 squares to the frame using mod podge.  I embellished the sentiment square using buttons and a metal key from Tim Holtz Idea-ology collection. 


I glued the wedding dress domino over the stamped Wedding Dress image and took care in matching up the swirls. I glued down the Groom stamp. I cut out and adhered the Wedding theme designer paper to create a cross on the front of the frame. 


To finish off the frame, I added a flower in the center, some pearls and two corner metal embellishments.

I was beyond thrilled with the way this frame turned out. I intentionally left two ofthe squares empty for the lucky person who ends up with this frame to add their own pictures.

I hope you have enjoyed my three week featurette and have inspired you to create some Altered Art of your own.
