IndigoBlu Challenge 7

Hi everyone, today is IndigoBlu Challenge day and this months challenge is shabby chic. Quite a difficult one without using yards of lace and pre made paper flowers. I decided to decorate a frame that Kay had given me aaagggeeesss ago as a little present for myself. I had not done anything with it yet so decided to use it for the challenge and I will be keeping it because I love it too!.


First I removed the heart section as it was paper and acetate then painted the whole thing with the IndigoBlu Gee-so-good gesso. Once dry I gave it a coat of Frosty Sky IndigoBlu paint. Once that was dry I dry brushed the edges in random place's with the Pantry White IndigoBlu paint. Also in the Pantry White I randomly stamped the script stamp.


I edged the whole piece with the  Iced Spruce Distress Ink and then stamped the vintage flourish IndogBlu stamp and gilded with Sheffield Steel mega Flake. The words are from the Live Laugh love stamp plate and stamped with Vintage Sepia Versafine Ink.

Thanks for visiting

Clare
