Stamping with Attitude

So, I actually had time to get some stamping done today! I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to make, but I did get my blog hop card made for the Bombshell Hump Day Hop on March 31st...but you'll just have to wait to see that! :)

Then, I saw this frame that I had laying around...so I decided to make a wall hanging for my hide-away. Here it is:

I printed the "Stamping...with attitude" from the computer (I used the Vivaldi font, size 72 in Word). Then I speckled it and sponged it lightly with SU's Creamy Caramel to age it a bit. I had some red Magic Mesh laying on my desk so decided to use that and then layered 2 different creamy-colored ribbon scraps (both from Offray) across the middle of the mesh. I stamped the sailor girl from Bombshell's Ahoy, Sailor stamp set (I just love her!) onto white GP110 cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with my Copics. I also speckled and sponged the image with Creamy Caramel. I layered the image onto Real Red and Basic Black cardstock and then attached it the center of the image, then put it in the frame and...voila!! I love it! So? What do you think??
