Here is a picture frame I revamped using bombshell stamp set Butterfly queen. I love it and wanted to share it with you. It is also featured on Terra's blog when I was her guest designer! Hope you enjoy.
What you need: Picture frame with glass cover not plastic
embossing powder(I used clear, you can use any color)
etching cream( I used the one that you leave on for 1 min. different products have varying times)
Versamark ink pad
cardstock color of choice or patterned paper for background
embellishments of choice
Step One: Take glass out of the frame and clean thoroughly with glass cleaner.
Step Two: Rub embossing buddy over cleaned frame in the area where you are stamping.
Step Three: With Versamark, stamp your image. Be very careful that your stamp does not slide when doing this.
Step Four: Emboss with clear embossing powder. (When you use the etching cream in the next step the embossed image will not etch.) After finished embossing, use contact paper to mark off glass where you do not want the cream to go. ( I used a 8x10 frame so I masked off a 6 1/2 " section!)
Step Five: Use etching cream according to package directions. (Mine says leave on for 1 minute. Some need more time!)
Step Six: Clean with water making sure to rub all of the embossed image off, that way you have a clear image. I used my fingernail, but a non-abrasive scrubbing tool will work. Make sure to clean off all your finger prints when done!!
Step Seven: Decorate card stock background (if using). I used the butterflies from the Bombshell stamp set. Attach your picture. Decorate the outside of your frame any way you choose. I chose to emboss in silver the words "My Bombshell" and used crystal flowers in shades of blue. Blue is my daughters favorite color and she picked the colors out since this is a picture of her.
