Allsorts - Frame it

This week's challenge at Allsorts is to use a frame.    Lots and lots of scope there had to give this a little thought.

Chosen to use Tando Flourish 7 as my frame.   Cream linen card stamped with images from Andy Skinner's back to Nature set using DI, Adirondack and Colour box Chalk ink.   The flourishes coloured with DI Vintage Photo and Rusty Hinge, and then coated with Glossy Accents Crackle.    The TH bird stamped with Adirondack Espresso onto rainbow coloured vellum.   The vellum is layered under and over the Tando pieces.

Used a new to me glue to attach everything, Eco Green.   Have fallen in love with everything about this glue from the dispensing top to the easy of putting glue where you want it and then the quick dry to a good firm hold.

Tando Chipboard, Andy Skinner Stamps, Distress Inks and Eco Green glue all available at the Craft-Room
