2RB - Banana Split Sunday Challenge No. 5

It is once again time for’s Banana Split Sunday Challenge. This week’s challenge is to make something that is not a card. Go to 2RB’s blog for more information and to check out the other Design Team member’s samples.

I didn’t have a problem with this challenge because I love to alter stuff, so I don’t always do just cards or layouts. I have baskets and boxes full of items that I figure I can alter some day. Today I chose to use this little sandwich frame (which consists of a cardboard back, glass front and clips to hold it all together) that had an image in it that no longer goes with my décor.

I used a piece of Imaginisce Baby’s Breath paper as the background. The sentiment is stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid ink using some Martha Stewart acrylic stamp letters. I also added some Sakura Stardust ink in the centers of the tiny flowers.

The image is a House Mouse stamp (from 2RB) that was stamped on watercolor paper with StazOn Jet Black ink and colored with watercolor pencils. Then I punched it out with a circle punch. There are some Stardust accents on the eggs and around the edges of the image. I adhered the image to the background paper and placed it in the sandwich frame.

This was a really quick and easy little project that my daughter is excited about hanging in her room for Easter. I hope you are inspired to join 2RedBananas’ challenge and create something different this week.


  1. This is so adorable! I love this fun Spring color combo, just perfect for a little girl with all its pink sparkle! This little guy is such a cutie!

  2. So cute Wendy! I love all the sparkles :)

  3. This is so cute. At first glance, it reminded me of Olivia winking. I like the sparkly dots around the circle.


Love to hear what you think!
