Great time to use up your scraps. I also cut the Cameo Frame with chipboard. Glue some of the paper to it.
I put walnut stain and antique linen stain on the craft mat and spritz with water.
Looks like old leather!
While you have your stains out ink your crinkle ribbon. A little water spritzed on the stained ribbon blends the stain.
Time to accessorize. Use what ever you have in your stash. I just got the writing desk die and wanted to play. I used walnut stain distress paint on the jar, sand and then ink it up with black soot distress ink. Adding some remnant rubs make these fun.
Start layering all your paper and frames. Then add all your goodies.
I attached the pediment with the tiny attacher. You could cover up the metal bits but I love the little metal staples.
I sometimes have to be careful not to over load these things. Especially when they are traveling! I wanted to add pine cones, greenery, more die cuts, tickets, stamping, metal bits. Seriously, it was heard to stop!
I cut the feather with watercolour paper. The creamy texture paper is perfect feather material. I inked the feather with walnut stain and black soot. I then used my blender pen to smooth the ink.
I used a pen nib for the feather...had to be done. Then I attached some film strip.
The inked ribbon is thread through the word band and attached with the tiny attacher. Fray the ends a little.
And yep, I made 2!
The money I saved with postage I was able to pick up the ornate frame...which I've been waiting to get;) Although, honestly once I have it in mind to create something I just go for it. And for me the frame is key! These are all wrapped with Christmas paper and topped with a bow!
Thanks for popping in:)
