Fall Frame

I love the idea of a stamped picture frame. Transforming a white mat into something more interesting can enhance the artwork itself. So long as your artwork isn't too busy and the design around the frame compliments the colors and patterns of the artwork, you can achieve a really nice effect. See this great example by Angie Holden. She has stamped the wreath , which is the outer ring of PSA Topiary Peel & Stick stamps in orange ink and black ink around the page. She's managed to achieve really crisp and clean impressions, even close to the borders! Careful when you are doing this to start with one color, let it dry, and then stamp over it.

What a fun idea to frame colorful leaves, too!
