Hello Stampers, I have an altered wooden frame to share with you today.
First of all, I mixed a smidgen of sunset orange paint into some white gesso, then painted the whole frame with it. Then I painted a coat of rock candy crackle over the front. When this was dry, I used cut n dry foam to rub vintage photo distress ink into the cracks, to highlight them. I used a slightly damp cloth to wipe the excess ink off.
I stamped the flourishes in the two opposite corners with black stazon ink, then used orange viva gold to add some pearly highlights.
I embossed a piece of black soot distress coredinations paper, using a Tim Holtz texture fade, then sanded it to reveal the core. I mounted my image onto this, then inserted it into the frame.
I stamped three medium flowers from the Flower Power plate, onto tattered rose distress coredinations paper, & three onto the spiced marmalade, then cut them out & embossed them, using Tim's dotty texture fade. I cut 6 leaves out of peeled paint coredinations paper, using Tim'smini branch & leaf die. I sanded & inked all the flowers & leaves, added the stamped button centre from a freebie Artistic Stamper stamp from The Craft Stamper magazine to each of the flowers.
Finally, I arranged the flowers & leaves in opposite corners of the frame, then added the stamped words from the Childhood Dreams plate.
The Ranger Core'dinations Paper is on special offer this month on The Artistic stamper website HERE.
Thanks for looking!
