Here is the finished piece
|Gilded Frame in Autumn Colours|
Products used for Gilding the Frame
Products used for Picture
Stamp, Perfect Pearls Mica Powders and Clear Versamark Ink
(all from ClarityStamp)
The Glazing for the Frame was actually Clear Acetate from Crafters Companion
They sell the acetate which has a protective film on both sides to keep it clean and free of scratches. I removed one side of the film and attached to the back of the Frame with double sided tape, then I removed the other film before putting my image in place.
After dealing with the frame I added some Elder Leaves. I stamped them out on thick Parchment (the kind used for box making) using the Versamark and then added the mica powders.
I then embossed, pierced and snipped them out.
I did have to do a bit of masking with the corner piece using Post it Notes. I love the effect that the snipping has on the edge of the leaves.

I love how the colours of it all change with the light available
a bit how the seasons change!
As I said at the top I am entering this into the Clarity Stamp Challenge Blog

Happy Crafting Everyone
Good luck to All. xx
