Vintage style French Bubble Frame

Morning everyone, Tracy here. 

Have you been and checked out the new Spring release ? there is some fantastic items in the release, so if you haven't checked it out, then what you waiting for ! 

Onto what I have been creating this week. 

I have used one of the fab Bubble Frame kits, the one I have used is the new French Oval Kit, and it is beautiful ! 
I wanted to go with a vintage/shabby style with it...

What do you think ? I was really happy with how it turned out. 
On the actual frame I have painted it with Off white paint, and then used a Crackle glaze, once dry I used Distress stain, which i rubbed all over and then buffed off. 
The edges of the frame and French oval I rubbed some gold wax. 

Inside the Bubble I have used the new Stacey's stacking flowers, which are brilliant and so versatile ! I used Aged White Embossing Enamel & Copper Kettle Embossing Enamel on the flowers and trimmed them so they sat around the edge of the frame, I also "lifted" some of the petals to give some dimension to them.
I have also used one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Accents set and one of the flourishes from Medium Flourish Accents set, i embossed these using Bahama Aqua Embossing Enamel

Here is a closer look at the butterfly...
You can also see the crackle and the beautiful frame better in this picture. 

I hope you like what I have been creating this week, don't forget to check back everyday and see what the rest of the team have been creating, and why not head on over to our Facebook page and share what you have been creating too. 
Happy crafting.
