Father's Day Altered Frame

With Father's Day right around the corner,  I thought you might want a little inspiration.  Today I am sharing the altered frame I made for my Dad using Quick Quotes Cracklin' Rose Collection

The original frame was a rich cherry wood which I sanded down and added some texture with a texture tool.

Once the frame was sanded and cleaned I generously swiped Midnight Confessions Powder Puff Chalking Ink all over the frame, making sure to get lots of ink in on the edges of the frame.  To add to the distressed look, I swiped off a bit of the ink in some spots with a dry paper towel.  

I glued the Cracklin' Rose paper directly to the mount creating the background for the photo.

The finishing touches included adding the Cracklin' Rose Chipboard Die Cuts to my frame.  I used the corner piece die cuts on the corners of my photo and the sentiment die cut to cover the wording that was etched into the frame.
