For my 8x8 page today, I used the Blue Fern Studios Vintage Locks chipboard and a portion of the Blue Fern Studios Symphony Border. First I painted each piece with Tim Holtz Distress shabby shutters crackle paint. Then I inked them with Tim Holtz frayed burlap distress ink. After that, I sporadically used embossing ink so that I could emboss the chipboard with Ranger embossing tinsel. It gives it a slight, shimmery look in spots. Be sure to look at the close-up photos so see it (click on the photos to enlarge).  The matting behind my photo is actually the packaging from the Prima flowers I used.
Pin It

Papers: Mother Nature Point of Time, Bazzill cs, Ruby Rock It Arcadia, Prima flower packaging 
Stamp Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink frayed burlap, Ranger embossing tinsel
Blue Fern Studios Chipboard: Vintage Locks, Symphony Border
Embellishments: Memory Box Fresh Foliage die 98502, Quickutz Washington font dies, Adirondack denim dabber, Melissa Frances resin tree, May Arts twine, Basic Grey buttons, Luxe Designs lime simple label, Petaloo leaves, Tim Holtz Distress shabby shutters crackle paint and chipped sapphire distress marker, Prima Soubrette E flowers, hand-dyed Hug Snug, sewing machine


And Win This from Me
I am also offering a prize which includes some Blue Fern Chipboard, a Crafter's Workshop template, and various flowers to one random winner. Just leave a comment here on this blog post by Sunday, Feb. 10 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern. I will randomly choose a winner on Monday, February 11th. Make sure you check back to see if you are the winner!
