INVENTORY CHALLENGE No. 69, You have been framed...


Happy Friday Friends.
thank God, this week is off.. I rarely say that, as time goes by too fast, but today thank god it is friday! Christina and I, as well as our lovely team, welcome to our 69th Inventory Challenge, featuring a Frame! Well, I had no time for a complete card this week, so I decided to frame an image. I have had that cute little magnetic frame for a while, in my kitchen, and pin my  "things to remember" on it, a picture of my dog had been there for so long, that it was worn out. I intended color a scenery that would suit my kitchen's color, but never got to it. So.. this was my chance. I received an e-mail from Make it crafty, featuring this new Paris collection, and thought it was perfect. I selected Paris sidewalk Scene that I sized 7 X 7 to fit my little frame. the scene is printed on Strathmore Bristol Velum, and colored with Faber Castel. I distessed the edges of my image with Tim Holtz little distresser tool, inked with Scattered Straw, and black sooth; then I generously put a coat of Dazzle Versamark, and used Vintage photo embossing powder, followed by another coat of Dazzle and Holographic embossing powder. Here is the result!

Bon vendredi chères amies,
Je ne suis pas fâchée de voir cette semaine se terminer! ce n'est pas dans mes habitudes, je me plains que le temps passe trop vite. Le thème de notre 69e défi, est un cadre. Je n'ai pas de carte à vous présenter, mais plutôt une image encadrée. Ce petit cadre magnétique décore ma cuisine depuis un bout, j'y avais placé une photo de mon petit chien, qui a eu la vie dure! et je me disais qu,il faudrait bien songer à la remplacer... le thème d'aujourd'hui me fournit l'occasion rêvée. J'ai reçu cette semaine un courriel de Make it crafty annonçant leur nouvelle collection d'étampe digitale et je suis tombé amoureuse de cette image: Paris sidelwalk scene. Je l'ai imprimée en 7 X 7, sur papier Strathmore Bristol Velum, et coloriée aux FAber Castel. J'ai vieilli les bordures avec mon petit outil de Tim Holtz, encré avec les encres distress Scattered Straw, et Black Sooth, puis généreusement enduites de Versamark Dazzle pour faire tenir la boudre à embosser Vintage photo, à nouveau enduite de Versamark, puis de poudre Holograpic. Et voilà... l'image de mon petit cadre.

Wonderful Miss Artist of the year! What I want to know is how do you learn to do all of this. I don't even know what half of the products you used are!!!!! You really are an artist and I think you must experiment with a lot of different things. Oh how I wish I lived close enough to take lessons from you. You are so clever and it always turns out so grand!
