I was looking for some home decor projects and came across some quick instructions for this gorgeous frame by a fellow demonstrator named Eva Dobilas of ilovetostamp.com. I used similar colours but changed a few other things.
For the background, I used a stencil I created with a Window Sheet with a die from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and mixed Embossing Paste with a drop of Bermuda Bay Ink refill and used a spatula to spread the mixture over the top. Then I watercolour washed the background with Coastal Cabana inkpad.
For the ferns, I watercolour washed some scrap watercolour paper with Lemon Lime Twist and Granny Apple Green and die-cut the fern from the Tropical Thinlits Dies.
The flowers are stamped with Sahara Sand and the colours paired as follows: Daffodil Delight with Pumpkin Pie, Coastal Cabana with Bermuda Bay and Flirty Flamingo with Cherry Cobbler.
The frame I used was 6" x 8" so I trimmed:
- the watercolour paper to 5" x 7"
- first layer Basic Black to 5 1/8" x 7 1/8"
- Sahara Sand layer 5 1/2" x 7 1/2" and
- final Basic Black layer to 6" x 8" to fit the frame.
