Daisy Frame

This is a project that has a story behind it. 

While doing all my spring cleaning in my stamp room, I found some wooden frames that I purchased so long ago I have no idea what I had planned for them!  Light bulb goes off and I paint one of them blue – okay, that blue is hideous so I try another shade.  Hummmmm – maybe some crackle paint.  Complete disaster!  By this time I have 6 coats of paint and crackle on it so I just go to bed!  So after sanding it a bit the next morning and painting it white with some Espresso reinker underneath – voila!  I’m so glad no one can look underneath the paint to see the mess!

Since I seriously doubt anyone wants to copy the technique used for the frame I’ll just give you the supplies for the Daisy!  The center of the Daisy was done by shredding Early Espresso cardstock with the distressing edge of the cutter kit onto a circle spread with Crystal Effects. 


Stamp set – Best Yet (retired)
card stock – Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, FIrst Edition DSP
Ink – Basic Black, Crumb Cake 
Ect – Big Shot Daisy #2, Small Oval punch, Curly Label punch, Movers and Shapers die, Crystal Effects, cutter kit

Of course, the First Edition DSP will be covered up by a photo, but I couldn’t stand the look of the insert so I covered it up.  While I really hope you enjoy this project, I would suggest you try it any other way than this!  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
