Hi there! So today I was doing a frame alteration. A dear friend bought a couple of Christian post cards and thought of framing them. She has an old frame that has few scratches on it already and asked me if I could do something about it.
And this is what I did today. I went for a grunge look for the frame and the insert of the frame. I sand, buffered, and kinda weathered the frame...even on the edges of the post cards. If you ever decide to try this, it is easy...but make sure to put on a face mask before you start your work because you don't want to end up breathing in all the dusk from the sanding. Clean the frame up nicely after you're done. I used a wet tissue first as it helps to clear off all the dusk, before using a small kitchen cloth to dry it off nicely.
|Before. The frame with the postcards.|
I mixed the inks for the corner and middle stamping. Black and brown makes a good weathering effect for this one as it matches the frame. I also inked all the edges of the off white colored paper that I used as a background for the postcards.
|Added a single glitter to the middle stamp.|
|Love the weathered effect on the postcards :)|
|Finished product :)|
And that's about it...you're all done! Pretty happy with the result today, and I'm glad the owner likes it too ;)
Catch you later :)! xoxo
