The planets have aligned once again and enabled me to create a project that I can share at my favourite blog challenges.


Over at Sunday Stampers Hels is asking us to use a frame on our project whilst at City Crafter Challenge Blog, the birthday celebrations continue and there is another card to CASe, this time created by the lovely Kirsty.


I started with a papier mache shadow box frame and gave it a couple of coats of gesso. I used the tissue transfer technique to add the script, which features in Kirsty’s card. I stamped with Tree Branch Archival ink, which picks up Kirsty’s base colour. After the top layer of Glue ‘n’ Seal had dried I rubbed on a little more ink and then a small amount of gold acrylic paint, taking off the excess with a baby wipe.


The bee was stamped, using black Archival, directly to the inside of the frame. I stamped a second bee onto cardstock, coloured with Vintage Photo distress ink and Promarkers and then used glue gel to apply over the original. The Honey Bee label uses a stamp from Chocolate Baroque. I stamped onto cream card and then inked with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.


To finish, and again borrowing from Kirsty’s layout, I added a paper flower in the corner.



Thanks for buzzing by.
