It's time again for another challenge at the Creative Belli Challenge. Today starts Challenge #146 which is Anything but a Card. I had so much fun doing this one - hardest part was making up my mind. I finally settled on a picture frame that I bought on clearance at Michaels last year. I always pick up sale items, with the best of intentions - sometimes I actually use them :)
I mixed several acrylic paints to get the colour I needed to cover the base of the frame and match the Graphic 45 Little Darlings Collection DP. I used a large MS punch-around-the-page punch to do the lacey mat. The flower I made using SB blossom dies and coloured the petals with Shimmerz (Opal). The leaves are from SB Foliage Die and Baby is a Marianne Designs. I die cut the baby's name using QuicKutz Studio Classic. The chipboard was from my stash and I coloured it with the acrylic mix I made up.
Frame is 8x8 inches
Here's a picture of the wooden frame I used:
I will be entering this into the Crafty Mess Challenge #111, Use Paint

This is my first time doing a frame - I think I could do with a little more practice but am pleased with how this turned out. Thanks for stopping by and we'd love it if could play along on this fun challenge.
Hugs, Pat K.
