I picked up one of these cool Tim Holtz Flip Frames a while back and I finally was able to decorate a little panel to hang in it.
I started by stamping the ruler background image from CMS163 Artful Tools on watercolor paper in VersaMark ink and then heat embossing with Black Embossing Powder. Once cooled I used a water brush to add washes of color from Distress Markers to the rulers. I did so by scribbling on an acrylic block with the marker and then picking up the color with the water brush. For a bit more grunginess I spritzed the background here and there with the Walnut Stain Distress Marker.
To embellish I added a mix of Film Strip Ribbon, washi tape, and ribbons. I spelled out “joy” using the Idea-ology Letterpress blocks and added some color via Squeezed Lemonade Distress Paint.
So what do you think? I’m liking this little decorative accent and will have to create a few more panels. :)
