A Frame Inspired by a Frame


I love the SCS Challenges, and I try to do as many each week as time allows. My favorite one is the Inspiration Challenge. It evokes so many different ideas from one picture and I love seeing what everyone comes up with. This week our inspiration was a frame from Neiman Marcus, which you can see HERE.

I decided to make a picture frame too. The Almost Amethyst background oval is actually a pocket to hold a photograph -- I will probably put one of my daughter in here after I get her Fall Ball pictures (event was last night) printed.

The frame base is Elegant Eggplant, then a layer of Sage Shadow, the Amethyst pocket and the Whisper White front.

The flowers and butterfly have Stickles on them for a sparkly effect, some of which doesn't show in the photo. The edges are distressed, including the inside of the oval. This frame is 6x6 inches.
