This week's Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs is to
use hearts and the word "love" on your project.I've embellished this 10"x10" frame with a banner and rosettes:
The opening is 7.5"x7.5" so a 4"x6" horizontal photo will fit nicely just below the banner.
My inspiration for this project came from one shown on page 16 of the Close To My Heart Spring/Summer 2013 idea book. Unfortunately they don't have it up on their site yet so I can't create a link to it for you.
Supply list: Patterned paper used for the banner and the rosettes is called Crimson Swirl by Rhonna Farrer, it is from deep in my stash and is copyrighted 2007! The burgandy cardstock is from my stash. I had stamped it with Antiqued Bronze Distress Stain while attempting a different project that didn't work out - so in the scrap bin it went to be reinvented today as part of my love banner! All paper has been inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mahogany. The letters and flourishes are Tim Holtz Grungeboard. The letters were colored with Metalic Rubs by Craft-T Prodcts in Gunmetal. The flourshes were first colored with Metalic Rubs by Craft-T Prodcts in White Sparkle, then with Fapber Castell Pitt Artist Pen in Light Green #171. The rosettes are made with a Tim Holtz Sizzlits die and embellished with pearls by Prima Marketing. The pearls on the letters are by Recollections, buttons are from my stash, and black twine is by American Crafts. The banner is cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels #17 die and the hearts are cut with Lifestyle Crafts Scalloped Heart die. The pearl sprays are from the wedding section at Michaels.
Thanks for looking!
