Give Thanks!

Good morning!  Sherry here today and I have an altered frame to share using the new Quietfire Design set, Give Thanks.  I debated on whether to make a card or alter a craft frame, and I settled on the frame.

I began by using a Dreamweaver stencil of a flourish and added Crackle Embossing Paste to the front of the frame.  Once the paste was dry, the frame was painted black.    To highlight the embossing paste, a bronze metal paint was brushed over the black paint.

The Quietfire Design sentiment was stamped on a cream card stock and then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Labels One.

I think I’ll set this frame out for the fall holidays and then sentiment can be changed for the seasons.

  7. This is lovely :) question.. do you really see the crackle of the embossing paste with all the paint over it? I was thinking of using regular embossing paste, painting, then using a Distress crackle paint on it. I hope that it works.
