jff challenge more than four sides

Finally I`m back ! although life is certainly not back to normal. My husband had a motorbike accident about a week ago. Thankfully he is not too badly injured - one broken rib, broken collarbone which has been plated and screwed and a broken shoulderblade. However, he will now be off of work for at least the next six weeks and there was me thinking once the girls went back to school I would be able to fit in a bit more crafting Lol. I cannot remember the last time I joined with with the challenge over at Jff which you can find here. However, I have managed to make it this week and the challenge is more than four sides. I`ve had this home sweet home stamp set from Chocolate Baroque for a little while now. Ditto the little wooden frame blank I have used which has been sat there waiting to be decorated for ages. I painted the frame with Paper Artsy fresco paint and used the crackle glaze on the top part for contrast. The main image was stamped and coloured with coloursoft pencils. I really like these as they are really soft and creamy. I`ve promised middle daughter she can have it for her room but I now need to make another one for the youngest. Its nice to make something different from cards though for a change. Hopefully I will be able to join with a few more challenges in future fingers crossed. x Lavinia
