The basis for this frame is an inexpensive Ikea mirror, which I covered with one of the new papers from the Shabby Chic paper stack of Tim Holtz. Then I used some Viva Ferro paste in the upper left corner and stamped it with a script stamp. After drying I painted it with silver paint dabber and distressed it with the new distress ink color Pumice Stone. I think this is my new favorite color as it seems to go with everything. The lace stamps are from the Artistic Stamper and again I used the Pumice Stone distress ink. For the flourishes and the large flower I used TSS metal in the new color Bronzed God and he new Timster dies Tattered Florals and Elegant Flourishes. To give the metal some "body" I made a "sandwich" out of cardstock, adhesive sheet and metal before I ran it thru my Big Kick. The roses are made with the same paper as used for the background and then dipped in UTEE.
Thanks again for taking the time to read my blog,
