Ol' Blue Eyes

This is an ATC I made for a swap called, "Used Postage Stamp People". The idea is you start with a used postage stamp, give it a body and put it in a background. This was a challenge! The first challenge was finding stamps with heads. I have a bunch of Frank stamps, but I needed two more. I managed to find two more and will post those when I'm finished. This one was a lot of fun.

I had an old song book that I got at the thrift store awhile back. I thought it would be cool to find a love song, or words with love in the song, for Frank to sing. The background is from an ad I really liked in a magazine. I colored in the windows of the building to make them stand out a little more. And since he's Ol' Blue Eyes, I changed the color of the ad to Blue (it was red). Ha! Pretty fun!!

I've finished one of the remaining two people. I have a packet of famous women stamps I got a while back. I've never heard of her, but she was from a while back. The other person is Fanny Brice. So stay tuned...

How did I miss this one? You should've told me - I can't believe you gave this one away. Oh how I adore Frank!
