I added the frames to my antique table with a little birdhouse and lace bird after I finished the project.
I started with some frames I already had. They were a gilded gold and pink, but they looked frenchy.
I added some light blue craft paint to the frame intself and some espresso metallic to the floral part of the frame.
These are the card images after they were stamped and I decided on my design. I made these cards with stamps I already had except for the frenchy word background on this card. I'll share more about the stamps that I have in a later post.
This one looks much prettier in person, but it is a little too busy for me so I'll redo it.
I really like how this card came out, it has that frenchy feel I was looking for. I have it on the mantel in this picture.
I enhanced this one a little bit to soften it. The floral part of the frame is really darker than it shows. It is more of a shimmery metallic brown.
This pic is taken on my table again with my faux flowers. Hopefully I will have a garden next year. I think certain types of faux flowers can be really pretty. I will use them a lot in my autumn displays.
It was evening by the time I got all my pics taken so I included these that I took with the evening sun setting and reflecting through our patio door.
I love the shadows that evening pictures create.
I always attempt to create projects that give me a special feeling, kind of like I am lit up from within. I guess I look at design and a lot of things in life that way. Thanks for joining my little tour. I will be linking up to
