Happily Ever After Blog Hop

Welcome to our May Art
Philosophy/Artiste Blog Hop! As you know, both the Artiste and the
Art Philosophy cartridges are available exclusively through a Close to My Heart
consultant. If you don't already have a Consultant that you are currently
working with, please contact one the Consultants in our hop with any questions you

If you have just hopped onto my
blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create . If you came from Jennifer's blog
4 Hearts Scrapbooking then you are in the right place!

Our challenge this month features
not only one of these amazing cartridges but we also have a Wedding theme.
There are so many weddings this time of year! Do you have any weddings coming up?

So for my project I decided I would make my best friend a picture frame that would match her wedding colors. Her Bridal Shower is today and so this is her gift.  I first took some Pearl Paint and added about 12 drops of Outdoor Denim Re-inker which got it to the color you see here. I painted the edges of the wooden frame with it and let dry a couple of hours. While that dried I took a sheet of For Always Paper and used the direct ink technique to the paper, dyeing the white part of the paper with the Outdoor Denim. I then used the paper trimmer to cut the paper to the size of the frame.

I cut from the Artiste Cartridge the Mr. & Mrs. in Black Cardstock, which I also painted with the tinted Pearl Paint.  I added Liquid glass to the top to give it dimension.   I also cut all the 3D flowers from the Artiste, and rolled them using the Quilling Tool. All paper is adhered using Liquid Glass.  I inked the flowers with Outdoor Denim Ink, and the remaining tinted Pearl Paint to pull all the colors together.
