Carte Postale frame tutorial

Hello friends! Happy Friday to you all!! Today I have a simple tutorial, I started a project and on the way I made several mistakes and this tutorial was born {wink, wink}

Directions: 
Step 1: Gather all your materials and get ready to stamp. 

Step 2: Stamp "Carte Postale" image on a piece of Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock in Versamark Watermark ink. 

Step 3: Cover image with Light Blue Embossing Powder and heat set. 


Step 4: Apply a smooth coat of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. 

Step 5: Apply a second coat using Broken China Distress Ink. 

Step 6: Finally apply Vintage Photo Distress Ink. 

Step 7: Your piece now looks like this, you can apply as little or as much ink as you want. TIP: I leave the stamped area a little bit lighter of Vintage Photo Ink. 

Step 8: Stamp the border around the edges in Blue Hawaii StazOn and the other two images in Spiced Chai StazOn Midi Ink. 

TIP: You can use this piece in a card, but also you can decorate your room with beautiful frame. I got this pretty frame at my local Goodwill for only 0.99 cents!!

Here is the final project:

Hope you like it and give it a try.
Have a fantastic day!
