Be Grateful Mixed Media Frame

Hi to all of our ColorBox fans! 
I am so grateful to been able to create for an amazing company like ColorBox! 
I was as shocked as everyone about them closing up business but if you are like me I still love ColorBox inks!
if you don't have ColorBox in you stash just use some of your favorite inks. 
 I am sharing how to create a fun mixed media "Be Grateful" Mixed Media Frame using ColorBox  Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and the ColorBox Clear Butterfly Stamp Set. 

Paint frame with White Gesso; dry.

 Spray prepared frame with ColorBox Stephanie Barnard Sky Spray. Dry.

Stamp background image using ColorBox Stephanie Barnard Premium Dye Ink.

Lay ColorBox Ann Butler Art Screen Lattice to top of frame. 
Apply modeling paste to top with palette knife dry.

Apply ColorBox Dyestress Dye Ink to craft mat. 
Spray with water. Drag 5” x 9” watercolor paper through wet ink; dry. 

Repeat with Heather; dry.  

Petit Bouquet; dry. 

and Moonstruck; drying between applications.

Stamp ColorBox Butterfly sentiment and butterflies to prepared watercolor paper. 
Add to frame.

Prepared second watercolor paper as in Step #5 for butterflies. 
Stamp and fussy cut butterflies to top with ColorBox Premium Licorice Dye Ink. 
Give depth to butterflies using ColorBox Dyestress Blendable Moonstone and Petite Boutique Dye Ink. Dry.

Adhere to frame at body; tipping wings with tweezers.

Apply ColorBox Dyestress Moonstruck, Petit Bouquet to flowers using water. Dry. 
Adhere to frame with bow.
