I wanted to share an Altered Frame that I have created using some paint and a variety of chipboard embellishments. I have used a few techniques from stamping with Chipboard to clear embossing for a lacquer finish.
For the center of the frame, I cut my cream card to size and stamped my sentiment using black archival ink. I then painted my Spring Fresh Swirl Corner using Distress Paint. While the paint was still wet - I flipped it and pressed it onto the cream cardstock just as you would a stamp. I love the look it gives! I then applied clear embossing powder to the Swirl Corner and heat set for a lacquer finish.
For the outside Ornate Square Frame chipboard embellishment, I also used Distress Paint also and clear embossing powder. I heat set and then adhered it to the frame.
I placed the Spring Fresh Swirl Corner in the left top corner, the glass and the cream stamped cardstock behind. I placed the backing on the frame and added a few lovely roses in my colour palette.
