Frames


The current challenge on Created Byhand is frames. This atc uses a slide mount covered with textured paper for the frame. After covering the slide mount, I sponged Brilliance black ink over the paper to tone it down as it is very shiny and metallic. The collage image is printed on regular white cardstock. The background is gesso and Lumiere copper paint dabbed onto watercolor paper. "Cherish" is stamped with Versafine black ink. The extra swirls are done with the top part of the cherish stamp. A puffy heart was added to the frame.

Great idea using a covered slide mount. You have reminded me that I have a lot of them and should be puting them to use. You did a terrific challenge here, Wanda.
