I started off by painting the edges of the frame with the Ranger Snow Cap Acrylic Paint Dauber. Next a cut a piece of white card stock just smaller that the frame itself, rounded the corners and cut the centre out plus one small strip for my sentiment. I stamped the white card with each of the stamps in the set except for the 'Keep calm and carry on' which I stamped in the middle of the card I cut out of the centre. I used Tim Holtz Barn Door and Faded Jeans Distress Inks on both pieces but left some of the white card showing through. Next I spritzed some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Marshmallow, Sapphire and Black Cherry. Once happy with my outside piece I distresses the edges of the card stock and covered the entire piece with Ranger Distress Crackle Paint Rock Candy. Next I cut a piece of corrugated cardboard and stuck this to the frame using Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi-Medium. I also painted the Multi-Medium over the top of the Rock Candy and rubbed a small amount of Ranger Perfect Pearls - Perfect Copper in the top corner. To finish my centre piece I wound some Stampin'Up Linen Thread round the bottom of my 'Keep calm and carry on' sentiment and placed this square behind the glass. I attached a crown charm to some twine and glued this to the cardboard so that it hangs above the sentiment but on top of the glass. Finally I glued the main stamped frame to the corrugated cardboard and I used foam tape to give some depth to my 'London calling...' sentiment.
Normally I wouldn't post my finished challenge piece until the day after the crop but most of the other girls have posted early so here is my finished frame:
Thanks for looking!
