Today I am showing you a frame I did. I used the Close To My Heart My Creations Bracket Frame (HERE). I have had this for a while and just didn't know what I wanted to do with it, but a few days ago I decided it was the perfect place to put a picture of my Grandmother! I wanted a vintage look with the picture, so I chose the Scholastic Paper Packet (HERE). I think it was a perfect choice! The solid cardstock is COCOA. I used modge podge to adhere the paper to the frame. For everything else I used Liquid Glass and my Tombow runner. I used CHOCOLATE ink for inking my edges on the mats and tag.
The frame is kind of like a shadow box. Maybe you can get an idea of that from this picture:
The trim around the frame is our Colonial White Rosette Ribbon (HERE). Another perfect thing for my vintage look! I have layered it on top of the Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon (HERE) that I colored with my Chocolate ink pad (easy peasy!). It made the Rosette Ribbon POP a little more doing it over the darker ribbon.
I made the tag with more paper from the same Scholastic paper packet, inking around the edges and sanding them a little bit. The smaller tag will pull out, revealing my grandmother's name! I used the LOVE DOILY stamp (HERE) which I heat embossed with our embossing powder. (Love doing that with this doily stamp!) The flower I handmade using yet another paper from the Scholastic paper pack. The SPARKLES FLOURISH (HERE) I colored with a brown copic marker. Those can easily be colored any color with an alcohol marker!
