Layered Arch Frame


I created this frame using the TH arches and rectangles dies. I ran the middle arch through the script embossing folder. They are both painted with lumiere paints, metallic bronze, metallic silver and olive green, as I haven't used them in a while!!

I stamped the LP image onto kraft card in black stazon, added a few gems and covered it in a piece of silver ribbon mesh.


A close up of the mesh.

Over at Out of a Hat Creations they have a theme of picture frames, so I am entering.

Hi Sam. Great frame, love the ribbon mesh effect. It goes beautifully with the metallic paint and makes the image look quite soft. Monika xxx

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
