Hello Stampers! I've got a little textured frame to share with you today.
I used a little wooden frame, The Artistic Stamper has similar ones HERE. I started by applying Studio gesso all over the frame, as this helps the texture paste stick to it. I applied Viva Ferro through the Dylusion Diamond of a Border stencil, using a palette knife.
Once this was dry, I painted over the whole frame. I used Cloudy Blue Paint Dabber, with a little London Blue Dylusion Ink Spray mixed in. Once the paint was dry, I lightly sponged Expresso Paint Dabber over the raised pattern, and on the edges of the frame. I was going for a distressed look, so I didn't worry too much about the paint going where it shouldn't, and I love how it picked up some of the rough wood texture too.
I stamped one of the Nudes onto glossy card, using Jet Black Archival Ink, then coloured her with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I cut the image to fit inside the frame.
I dabbed a little Cloudy Blue Paint onto a button from Tim's Fanciful Accroutrements, cut the back loop off with my Tim Holtz Scissors, then attached it to the bottom of the frame. I punched a couple of leaves from green Co'oredinations paper, sanded them carefully with a Sanding Grip, then tucked them behind the button.
To finish, I coloured some white ribbon with Antique Linen Distress Stain, then threaded it through the 'Love' Ideaology Key, tied a bow, & added it to the top right of my frame.
Thanks for looking,
