Passion Inspired Art

WT190 Love Art Frame_SaK 002

My project today is a frame created with distress crackle paint/frayed burlap.  The frame was an unfinished 5 x 7" frame that

was painted black before adding the crackle paint.  I stamped the frame using Versamagic chalk Jumbo Java ink and Adirondack

Pigment in cranberry for the words.  The decorative corner was a shiny bright gold embellishment I found in my craft supplies

the other day.  It was embossed with Distress powders in Antique Linen & Walnut Stain.  I lightly sponged on some cranberry

pigment ink.  I love how it looks like it has been corroding for years.  The mat is cordinations that was run through the cuttlebug

with the textile embossing folder and then swiped with Jumbo Java Chalk ink.  All the details on the main image can be seen in

a post HERE.  I just changed out the mini pop cap ART Eye from brown to cranberry to stand out a little.  The shimmer mist can be

seen in the detail photo.  The words on the frame are available from Innovative Stamp Creations ATC Elements II sheet.
