Retro Selfie Frame

As soon as I saw this Retro Selfie image from KennyK Stamps I knew I wanted to make a photo frame. I love using papercraft and cardmaking items for something a little different.  
My husband and I took a few funny selfies last year at our triple-birthday-bbq (he, my daughter and my Dad have birthdays very close together!).  I photoshopped the images first to give a more retro feel and to fit in with my image colouring.
The other products I have used to create his frame are:
  • Wooden frame, burlap and mini pegs from Michaels
  • DoCrafts twine
  • Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks - Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain
  • Vintage photo frames from K&Company
  • Promarkers - Satin, Pastel Beige, Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa, Burnt Sienna, Henna & Walnut


I am entering this frame into the following challenges:
  1. Club Kenny K - #11 Anything Goes
  2. A Bit More Time To Craft - #22 Anything Goes
  3. Craft Your Passion - #316 Anything Goes
  4. Incy Wincy Designs - Alter something
  5. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - #35 Anything Goes
  6. Penny's Paper Crafty - #282 Anything Goes
  7. ABC Challenge - 'J' Just As You Like
  8. Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes June

Many thanks, Nicola x
