Comic Book Frame

Joe's frame is finished. I like the distressed look, but do wish the transfers came out a little sharper. I want to control the Grunge not be at Grunge's mercy. Can you feel me?? Here it is:

That's Joe, my mom, my sister Deb, and my sister Linda. Seated in front is Joe's wife, Erin. I used these rubber stamps to pimp up the alcohol transfers from transparency transferred onto the canvas frame:
I am in love with this stamp, I wish it came in half this size for ATC use. Anybody know of one similiar? Here is the back. After I took this pic, I painted that white portion under the flap:
The final Christmas present completed during the blizzard. Feels good to have it done and be relatively pleased with it, freaky perfectionism aside. teehee. Next week will be nutty for shopping since Sat and Sun were too snowy to venture out. I have to go to the grocery store and the book store besides work of course.Unless of course we get another blizzard. xoSusan
