Hello, Julie here and today I have an up-cycled photo frame to share with you all.
I love the Gothic Fragment stamp set and decided to combine it with the Mini Script set to create a piece of home decor that could easily be given as a gift.
The frame has been covered in a selection of Twinchie and Inchie white lined board tiles from Tando. The smaller 1 inch tiles have been used with the Script designs and stamped with sepia and grey Versafine ink and then coloured with various Distress inks such as Weathered Wood, Tea Dye and Antique Linen. The larger 2 inch tiles have been stamped with Versafine ink as before, using designs from the Gothic Fragments and coloured with brush markers and Distress inks before adding white, paint pen highlights. After gluing the tiles to the frame I added gold gilding wax around the edges.
The centre piece has been created by placing a metal heart, cookie cutter over one of the Gothic Fragment stamps and then pouring in melted Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. Once the UTEE has cooled and set, remove the cookie cutter, peel away from the stamp and apply gold gilding wax to the raised areas of the heart. Stamp a piece of spare card with the Fragment stamps and colour with Distress inks. Cut to size and then glue the heart into place.
Many thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again very soon.
