I painted the wood frame with a coat of blue acrylic paint. Acrylic paint dries very quickly on wood, so you won't have to wait very long for it to dry.
Next I added four pieces of ribbon, one for each side of the frame.
I used a tacky glue to adhere the ribbon in the back of the frame and then added my photo.
I colored my image from the new Mulberry Wood Champion stamp set with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, using colors that coordinated with my photo. (Colors show below.) I also stamped the matching sentiment, "You're my Number One" from the stamp set. This darling stamp doesn't show a specific sport in it, so it will work for all kinds of sports pictures.
Spectrum Noir colors used: IG2, IG4, IG5, IG6, IG10, TN2, TN3, CG1, CG2, TB2, TB4, TB5
Once I glued down my stamped image and sentiment, I was all done. Though this afternoon project was an easy and quick one, my son was absolutely thrilled with it!
