Is Vic There?...

Good morning and happy Wednesday (it is for me 'cos it's my day off work this week) :-) We have a fun new challenge over at Stampotique, chosen by the fabulous Valerie called 'What's Old is New Again', and this is what she says about it.
"Re-purpose, re-use, recycle, and alter - words that are music to my ears!  Is there something destined for the trash heap that you can give a new art-filled life?  Or perhaps you're tired of that old wall hanging - can you give it a make-over?  My challenge for you this week is to take something old and make it new again!"

Here's my altered frame

The frame is in a very fetching black plastic that I bought as a set of three for not very much at all, thinking that I would alter them. Of course they just got in the way for about a year, and then were burried in a corner of my craftroom where the sun doesn't shine.

It was treated to many coates of Pebeo paint, and has been randomly stamped with Text Block 3 This was then heat embossed, which proves that you can emboss plastic, but it smells a bit funny (and where's that smoke coming from) :-)

Don't you just love this pooch?, his name is Vic and is one of Roc's new release stamps.
As soon as I heard his name I was back in 1980 (OMG 1980 really!!) and the old Department S song Is Vic There? 
Ah happy days I had a Human League hair cut, and it was all my own colour :-) sigh...
Anyway Vic has been stamped and coloured with pencils.

This was a really fun challenge Valerie, and I hope you join in too. Please remember the rules, there aren't many but they are important

  6. A brilliant "save," Sue! Love the vintage frame and love even more that it now showcases something quite different from perhaps its original intent--something more glamorous, perhaps, but certainly not more fun! Bravo!

  8. What a fantastic makeover for that frame - it looks wonderful! And the rainbow dogs are very cute.
