1st Attempt at a Bubble Frame

Globecraft Memories offers these amazing cardstock mini bubble frames. They are different than their book quality chipboard frames. These are made from a nice quality cardstock. They come in a three pack and are designed to hold a wallet size photo. I was simply playing and getting to know the product and this is what I came up with. Of course I started out with the crafting staple I am most comfortable with and grabbed a couple of my distress inks and got started inking.These cardstock frames are not available quite yet, but you can find their other frames here.
 Once I had it covered in ink, I wanted something to make the edges pop. I ran the edges across the top of the enamel adhesive dauber and then sprinkled Copper Kettle embossing enamel and hit it with some heat. Because the Copper Kettle is a micro fine powder, I got a really thin pretty copper edges. It would make a beautiful accent on a card.
 I used some of the Piccolo pieces to make an accent at the bottom. These are actually out of a set that is not available yet, but there are similar swirls and flourishes in the card decor sets here.
The little birds are also Piccolo pieces. I covered them with blue acrylic paint and let it dry. They needed a little sparkle, so I ran a versamark marker along the edges of the wings and then dipped it in the copper enamel powder. I then heat set it. The little heart I also covered in enamel powder. It was so tiny it wanted to blow away and the tweezers were getting in my way, so I took a repositionable glue dot and stuck it to my silicone mat. Once I heat set it I just peeled it up and glued it down. I glued all of the small pieces with Glastique. It was fun playing with the product.If you are ready to start playing with these wonderful items head on over and use the coupon code TS25. This will give you 25% off your order.
