I played with paint and glue and even took some pictures of the process yesterday but then when I woke up this morning and saw the dried panel I decided to do something else today. That panel and another panel I did with paint and glue will just have to wait until the muse comes and whispers in my ear what to do with them. ;-)
I found on my hard drive where my external drive had copied several files which I thought were lost for ever. Among them is a charming Tulip Frame by Pamela A Conner which she made using dingbat fonts. I also found at Hobby Lobby Inka Gold on sale so you know me I had to play.
Last week at My Creative Classroom the emphasis was on stickers. I've been hoarding these dimensional stickers I found at a dollar store for a couple of years. If I ever find more I definitely will buy the store out.
Oh you want to see the finished card. O.K drum-roll please.
As I said the frame is a file by Pamela A. Conner. I cut the file out with some confetti cardstock which I've had for a long time. While cleaning I found a piece which had been printed on one side when I forgot to take the cardstock out of the printer and went to print something else. I decided to cut this file out with that first as a trial. Figured if it didn't cut right I wasn't out anything. Of course like usual when I do something like that I end up using the trial piece in the finished project. LOL!
Using a cotton swab I colored the frame with Lava Red and Gold Inka Gold. When the Inka Gold was dry I buffed it to bring out the shine. I decided to go ahead and use the inside piece from the frame. I inked the edges with Red Gold ink and then placed the dimensional sticker. I pop dotted the panel then on the card.
The weather is once again beautiful. Of course the joke here is if you don't like the weather wait fifteen minutes and it will change. The boys and I walked to the park on Sunday when it was clear only to get hailed on while there. Of course by the time we got home the sun had come out and the hail had stopped. So if you don't see me around for awhile I'll probably be enjoying the weather with my dogs outdoors taking photos.
Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again.
