Try it on Tuesday ~ Vintage Baked Frame

I was over the moon when I was asked to Guest Designer over at 
Try it on Tuesday this fortnight and with the theme being 
*Vintage* how could I possible resist.

Here is my Vintage* Baked Frame
and those *How to Do's*...

Stamping out a a dragonfly from Visible image I coloured in watercolour pencils.

Using a 11cm x 9 cm Size frame painted in warm tan paint
I placed the frame over the dragonfly inked up the stamp
and matching it up with the image kissing the frame with
the dragonflies delicate wings.

Colour matching the wings using the same watercolours I added 
a hint of vintage rose to the outer edge of the frame.

To add some raised detail to the frame I used Pebeo Cerne Relief 
to draw detail around the inside and outer edge.

When dry Versamark embossing ink was stamped all over 
the frame and bees wax baked Texture sprinkled all over it.

When heated it gives the most delicious colour and effect upon the frame.
With the dragonfly image fitted securely into the frame, co-ordinating glitter glue 
has been dotted across the glass covered wings and those stamped onto the frame.

Four flat back pearls sit neatly in each corner edged also with Cerne Relief.
A touch of gilding wax highlights those scrumptious baked bubbles.

Vintage Frame

I have another of these frames untouched, 
I may just have to decorate it in a similar way so it has a friend..

Thank you so much for visiting
and please do pop on over and check out the
Try it on Tuesday Design Teams Creations.

Take Care everyone.
