Hello again Stampers! Today, I have an inky frame to share with you.
I began by totally covering a papier mache frame with pieces of torn book page. I used Studio Matt Medium to glue the pieces of book page, then brushed more Matt Medium over the top, to seal.
Next, I brushed a thin layer of Studio Gesso all over the frame, so I could apply the Distress Inks to colour it. I used Fired Brick & Stormy Sky.
Then I stamped the flourish from the Flourish Swirls Plate, using Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I used a heat gun to dry and set the ink. I then stamped the splats from the A5 Swirls, Splats & Dots Plate, using Fired Brick Distress Ink, then heat set these too.
I stamped Keep Calm And Carry On Stamping onto glossy card, using Archival Jet Black Ink, then embossed it with clear powder. I cut it out, leaving a thin border, then inked lightly with the Fired Brick DI. I glued it to the inside of the frame, then added a crown charm.
To finish, I added some blue & red buttons, & applied Gold Inka Gold to the edges of the frame.
Thanks for looking,
