The Craft Barn Weekly Challenge - Stamping

This week's Craft Barn challenge is to use stamping on a project.

Some years ago when looking at rubber stamps on that well known auction site I saw the sentiment I have used on my project this week. I had intended using it on a plaque to hang in the staff area of the pre-school I worked at but it never happened. However a friend retired from a  pre-school recently after 35 years and the sentiment's time had come at last.

I painted a chipboard frame with Fresco "Caribbean Sea"  paint and then stencilled over it with Fresco "Snowflake". I stamp the toddler image (I love this stamp and it has been very well used) on card, coloured it with Copic markers and cut it out. The sentiment was printed onto a piece of background paper. I finished the hanging with a die cut flower using an inked piece from my scrap box, some leaves and a ribbon hanger. I then made the presentation box shown in the third picture.
