Photo frame

In this photo frame I used a standard 4x6 photo, so I can change the photo anytime with a new one.
In order to make this photo frame I cut a cardstock paper at 6x8 and drew with a pencil a frame on the cardstock leaving 1 inch on each side.
Then I cut a patterned paper in 8 pieces, the 4 of them at 1x1, the 2 of them at 1x4 and the other two at 1x6 inches. Next step, I covered theese strips with Versamark and heat embossed them 3 times with UTEE. When they were cool, I folded them in random because I wanted to have a crackled result. Next time I'll use Ranger's Crackle Accents because the result is prettier, but with UTEE the process is much much faster. Last step, I adhered the strips on my cardstock mat.
Then I cut a strip of green cardstock with the Fiskars Threading Water border punch and cut them in four pieces, 2 pieces at 1x4 inches and the other 2 at 1x6 inches. I sanded the edges a bit an covered the lot with a Sakura Stardust pen and finally adhered them on the frame.
Then I stamped the butterflies, they are from the Hero Arts Antique Engravings clear stamp set and colored them with my copics and before adhering them with foam pads on the frame I sprinkled them with the water and Perfect Pearls mix for some shine.
Last step, I used DMC pearlescent thread that I colored red with my copics around the frame and for the tiny bow, added the tiny Prima flowers and... ready!
