It's the first Tuesday in November which means it's time to learn a cool new technique at Technique Time Tuesday. This month it is Faux Frame.
Mynnette made a great video using the faux frame technique. I only have a couple of nested frames for my Cuttlebug so I turned to my Cricut for help. If you have the George cartridge you can use the Silhouette feature which makes a frame. So you can make your main shape and then the frame for it all on the Cricut. If you have cooler shapes and frames on other cartridges-use them! :)
My stamp is from Sparkle N Sprinkle, and I colored her with Copics. The flowers are little paper flowers from years ago-remember when they sold them in cute little bottle. Yeah, they come in a little bottle. I used Dusty Concorde Distress Ink for the frame and even on the paper flowers. Also, I don't have a cool little dauber thing to spread ink with (I know-WHAT!) but instead used a paper towel over my finger to control the ink. I tried my Ranger applicator first but I didn't have the control I wanted.
I can't wait to see what you make! Thanks for stopping by! Until next time my friends...it's faux frame time! :)
