Love Letter - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone!  I'm up on the Creative Embellishments blog today with this decorative 6" frame.  Love the variety of frames in the store.  With the decorative frames you can choose from 6" or the smaller 2" ones.  

 I'm a big fan of treating my chipboard with embossing powders, but challenged myself to use inks and paints for this project.  Love the finished look of the treated chipboard. I used papers from Stamperia's Calligraphy collection along with some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks,  Distressed Paints and Distressed Spray Stains.

I applied some Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap and Iced Spruce Distressed Oxide Inks to the frame.  Once the inks dried I dabbed on some Walnut Stain Distressed Paint and added some stamping using the  Distressed Crackle Stamp.

Beneath the layering I used the smaller piece from Flourish Set 4.  I applied some Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Ink and added some stamping with the Distressed Crackle Stamp.

Under all of the layering is a piece from Ripped Notebook Paper, stamped with Old Paper Distress Oxide Ink and stamped with the Distressed Script Stamp.  To the right I used 2 pieces from the Ink and Quill set.  I applied Black Soot and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Inks to the bottle and Iced Spruce Distress to the quill.  Under the stack of letters is a piece from Door Knockers, treated with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink and dabbed with Rusty Hinge Distressed Paint.

The key is from the  Keys set. I used the same technique on the key as the piece from Door Knockers.  to finish off my project I added some flowers and lace.

Thanks for stopping by!
