“Clearly Clever” Frame!

This Thursday, it’s all about… being Clearly Clever – sponsored by Clevercut.co.uk! Now DH and DD brought me some frames back from market with them at the weekend and I decided to alter one of them using my alcohol inks and the beautiful Oak, Ash, Thorn stamp from Third Coast RS. Here’s the result:

I stamped the image onto the glass with black Stazon and left it to dry. I then used alcohol inks straight onto the chrome frame – red pepper, butterscotch, cranberry and a little sage. I would’ve used the mixatives but I haven’t got any yet!. The pic doesn’t do this justice, it’s gorgeously mottled in RL. The background was run through the cuttlebug script folder and then enhanced using metallic rubons. I did use a tiny touch of white sakura gellyroll pen on the back of the glass to her eyes and mouth. This is one of the most beautiful images I own – I think she’s completely dreamy!

  4. Hi Rosie

    Carol – thank you… and I owe a lot of it to you, my friend. You always inspire me to push that envelope and have fun with it! 🙂

    Tracey – I’m sure your frame will be outstanding mate! I’m not very good with the alcohol inks, frankly, but they are handy when you want a ‘quick’ result – even if my hands are still butterscotch! *sighs* 🙂
    And I hope you enjoy your ‘quiet time’ with family!
