Peace Frame - CropStop

Embossed Fabric Tape Peace Frame Tutorial by Dana Tatar

Thanks for joining me today! I'm sharing an altered frame for my third Guest Design project for CropStop. I'm loving the pretty pastel color palette of this piece! I used the Tim Holtz Spring 2012 Distress Ink Set on the frame and Radiant Rain Honeydew Mist with a 6x6 Mini Word Collage Template from The Crafter's Workshop for the image inside the frame.

Embosed Fabric Tape Colored with Distress Ink by Dana Tatar

I wanted to dress up this white frame, so I embossed strips of fabric tape and colored them with Distress Ink.

I finished the frame with a beautiful bow made with Parrot Green and Yellow Sheer Ombre Ribbon.

I started with a roll of Prima Cotton Writers Tape and the Couture Creations Damask Embossing Folder. I cut 4 pieces to fit my frame, placed them inside the embossing folder and ran them through my embossing machine.

I added color to the tape with Squeezed Lemonade and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

I then trimmed the edges of the tape to fit inside the frame.

How to Use Mist With A Stencil by Dana Tatar

I used Radiant Rain Honeydew Mist, a 6x6 Mini Word Collage Template from The Crafter's Workshop and a piece of watercolor paper to create the piece for the inside of the frame.  I positioned the template on my paper and lightly sprayed over the template with the mist.

Once the mist was dry I used the template as a stencil and traced around it with a Black Soot Distress Marker.
