Metal Frame

Hi y'all,
Today I had so much fun. I made this frame from all of the little scraps of metal I kept in a box. I always feel good when I'm using my scraps. I saw this idea at the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Arlington last month and it was made by Cheryl Darrow of Ten Seconds Studio. So I can't take credit for the design. The technique is also explained in one of her Taco Tuesday videos. If you're interested, here is the link: . What is my idea is to color and stamp the magnetic board inside the frame. I first colored the board with alcohol inks and then stamped with Stazon ink. Normally I don't work with very bright colors, but I love how this turned out.

Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope y'all have a safe and happy 4th of July!
