I made a circle frame, using stamps and paint and a fun dimensional flower:
I used Wendy's fun Art Parts Large Circle Frame as the base for my frame, love how sturdy the art parts are.
The great sentiment from Wendy's Celestial Art set was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossed. I masked it with a piece of paper and stamped the surrounding areas with the large stamp from the same set using Versamark, and embossed with Ranger's Frosted Crystals Antiquities. Loved the effect, it was hard to photograph though.
The star of the frame is the dimensional flower, made from one of my favourite products, Wendy Vecchi Clearly For Art Modeling Film. If you visit my blog often, you have probably seen me use it before. I die cut flowers from the film using the Tattered Florals and Mini Tattered Florals dies. Then they were stamped with Stazon Platinum and Cotton White, using the background stamps from the Collectible Art, Well Worn Art, and Celestial Art sets. When the ink was dry, I heated each flower and shaped it. The film keeps its shape perfectly when cool. If you are not happy with the way a flower look, just reheat and shape it again. (Don't burn yourself.)
I layered all the flowers together and attached a jewel brad in the centre.
The flower got a lovely Blossom Bucket Lace Leaf which was painted, first with Stream, and then dry-brushed with Speckled Egg. When dry, I coated it in a thin layer of Distress Stickles Rock Candy.
After painting the frame silver, I sanded it and inked with Black Soot. Then it was covered with Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint. When the paint had dried, I pounced it with Tumbled Glass Distress Stain. I love the effect that gives.
I hope you will join us in the fun this week! Just like every week, our generous sponsor, Simon Says Stamp, gives a $50 gift voucher to one lucky participant.
Thank you so much for looking!
