Altered Frame - You & Me

I love the colors in this frame and it seems very cheerful. This design would be great for a couple, a parent and child, friends, etc. I liked that it had endless possibilities for the photo to be used.

Supplies Used:
Ready to Finish 12x12 Memory Frame
Fancy Pants All Fall
Various cardstock
Cricut CM Cheerful Seasons cartridge
Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge
Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder
Stampin Up marker
Pearl Glimmer Mist
Cat Eye Chalk Ink
Signo UM 153 white gel pen

That little bird has two light blue layers and two medium blue layers. I used mounting foam between the layers to give him dimension, it is hard to tell in the photo though. I actually had the flower left over from another project but since it was the same paper and seemed to go well I thought "what the heck girl...USE IT!" and so I did. I used a Decorative Accent, also known as a "skittle" on the Cricut MB for the eye. I colored the bottom with a black ProMarker before attaching to the bird.

The title shadow was cut twice out of brown for added dimension. I pop dotted the shadow layers. I also pop dotted the ampersand, but before doing that I ran it through the Distressed Stripe Cuttlebug folder and sanded lightly.

Glimmer mist was added on the flourishes for a little subtle bling look.

Make sure to come back tomorrow for my favorite frame I altered. I actually used it as my Dirty Santa gift and it was a HUGE SUCCESS!
