Today I am sharing with you how to create this fun Halloween frame. I created my frame using a $1 wooden frame from the craft store, a Crafter's Workshop template and Clearsnap pigment inks, Smooch Spritz and embossing powder.
First, I gessoed the frame with white gesso and allowed it to dry. Then I used the 6x6 Mini Damask template from Crafter's Workshop to create a pattern all over with Plum Berry Pigment Ink and allowed it to dry. When the light purple ink was dry, I added Tea Party and Green Olive Smooch Spritz and allowed that to dry. Then I added clear watermark ink on top of everything and used Opalescent Clear embossing powder, which gave it the sparkle. I used Plum Berry, Lettuce and Sweet Melon Pigment Inks on the chipboard letters, along with more Opalescent Clear embossing powder. I added a purple bow (that totally matched in my craft room, not so much on the front door) and a picture of my kids from Halloween last year.
