Card with decorative frame

 

Barbara here with another card using the gorgeous “White Flowers on Green” Paper Collection from Meg’s Garden.

I thought I would share with you how I created the green frame for this card. The frame, also from Meg’s Garden comes as plain chipboard.

The first step is to cover the image both sides with white Gesso and wait for it to dry. Note I have shown another frame in it’s original state before applying Gesso.

I then coloured the frame using Copics, Ranger Distress markers and Pantone Tria markers. I also added some accents with a White Paint Marker.DSC05123

Once I had finished colouring to my liking, I added a coat of Ranger Glossy Accents to finish my frame.

Once it is completely dry, (best to leave overnight as sometimes the urge to touch can spell disaster),  it is ready to be added to a card or album.

      1. I wonder if it is because I sometimes reply via the email and other times from the blog post itself? Who knows, the vagaries of blogging?
