Make it Crafty ~ Gift for a friend blog hop

Hi everyone, I'm really excited to be taking part in this Make it Crafty blog hop!  We have some amazing projects to show you today, I'm so honoured to be working along side these awesomely talented ladies.

Today's post is really exciting for me, I've had a play with the fabulous Make it Crafty 3D Chipboard kit using Shadow Box Square Frame Kit.  It was awesome to put together, the finish is so neat and perfectly aligned.  I also have used the Antique Flourish chipboard set, I love the flourishes and the heart is just stunning.

If you visit my blog regularly, you would have seen that my daughter recently got married, her niece was flower girl and I just LOVED this photo of her collecting shells on the beach when the bridal party went to have some photos taken.

 I put the frame together, leaving the stand until last, gave it a coat of metallic gray acrylic paint.  The chipboard was painted with Platinum paint and the photo was printed and mounted on a mat of Gray card with a fine shimmer and then on the blue metallic paper that I'd used on the wedding invitations.

 Some closeup shots of the embellishments, a little cluster of roses, some blue rhinestones and strings of pearls.
 The heart is so delicate and gorgeous, I really love how elegant all this gorgeous chipboard is.

 This picture is taken on the angle to show you the depth of the shadowbox frame.  I hope you're inspired to try one of these amazing kits yourself.
