Watercolour Frames by Altenew

Good morning crafters

I'm here again with my weekly Monday morning blog for products available from 

Today I'm showcasing the stunning
Watercolour Frames by Altenew
I know you're loving them because they keep selling
I used the frames to create an effective and beautiful background to a flower stamp I had

Also used:
Distress Oxides : Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Worn Lipstick
Smokey Grey versafine ink

I cut a strip of white card and inked around the edge with the Peeled Paint Oxide

I inked up one of the solid frame stamps in the Peeled Paint, spritzed with water and stamped it near the top of the strip of card

I repeated the process with the other two Oxides. The effect of this frame stamp, together with the effect the Oxides create, is simply beautiful 

I then stamped the flower and sentiment in the smokey grey versafine ink and adhered the strip to my card blank 

Many thanks for popping by
