I can't get enough of these frames! It's fun to think of all the images I could put inside and layer.
The pine needle stamp is from a gorgeous old set by Hero Arts. I'm glad that they're bringing back more elegant stamps like they used to make. I love the old etchings and botanical images.
I coated the frame and the bird with Papier Glaze (which is like Diamond Glaze or Crystal Effects.) One tip I can offer is to temporarily adhere your image to a non-stick surface while the glaze dries. Otherwise, the image will warp and crack when you try to flatten it out. Ask me how I know!
Have any of you been following Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas? He's so fun to watch and makes me want to buy every product he uses, even if I know darn well that I probably wouldn't use it much! Case in point, I made a rare trip to Michaels today and bought the ink blending tool and Tea Dye Distress ink. Now, I DO think I will use these, although the blending tool is taking a bit of practice to get just right. I keep getting lines on my tag as I try to blend. Guess I need to check out his video again.
Thanks for visiting! Have a great rest of the weekend!
