Flamingo Four June 2013

It’s Flamingo Four time again. Four Flamingo Scraps design team members receive four items and we create something with it. It’s amazing how they all turn out so different!

Here’s the four items we received:


  • wood frame- Sheffield Custom Frames
  • snowflake stencil- Tattered Angels
  • dimensional quotes- Miscellaneous
  • cupcake topper- Miscellaneous

The first thing I did was to paint the frame with Tim Holtz Distress Paint. I used the Walnut Stain and let it dry completely. Then I used the Weathered Wood to go over the surface, but avoiding the nooks and crannies. Lastly I used the Snowflake stencil from Tattered Angels and misted over the frame with a light blue. I then I used some Pink Paislee Secret Crush paper to make a background.



I could have put the paper closer to the front, but I wanted to make kind of a shadow box effect.



I love the slight tinge of a pattern created with the stencil and the faux vintage effect of the layering of the paint.
