Framed Clay Bauble


Would you like to see another sample using Simply Pressed clay? I've got another one to share today, this time combining the sketch from IN{K}PIRE_me as well as the Just Add Ink challenge to add frames...

With this one, I rolled out some clay, pressed the Northern Flurry embossing folder into it then left it to dry, then die-cut it with one of the ornament framelits...

After I cut the ornament shape I sponged over the top with Pool Party ink and left to dry. I created the frame with Smoky Slate cardstock and used the Squares framelits to die-cut it, then embossed it with the Square Lattice EF. The white card underneath was embossed with the Mosaic embossing folder, then the frame was layered over the top with dimensionals. The dsp is from the lovely Winter Frost collection in the Autumn/Winter catty. I stamped a greeting from More Merry Messages on the lower triangle with Smoky Slate ink, then added some rhinestones and Pool Party seam binding ribbon to finish.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: More Merry Messages
Ink: Pool Party, Smoky Slate
Paper: Winter Frost dsp, Smoky Slate, Whisper White
Accessories: rhinestones, Pool Party seam binding ribbon
Tools: Square framelits, ornament framelits, Square lattice EF, Mosaic EF, Northern Flurry EF

Thanks for stopping by!
