Dare... Mo Manning DT

How are my blogging friends? Are you having a wonderful week? We are right in the middle of it, and I am here today to share with you my first DT project for Mo Manning.

For my return to the fabulous Dream Team, I chose the fabulous "Dare" as my main image. Every time I looked at this image and wonderful quote, I could imagine it framed and on a wall or shelf, so I decided to create an altered frame and use it as birthday gift. 

First I began working on the frame, which originally was lightly coloured wood. I covered the frame with Distress Crackle Paint, working with various levels of crackles, to give it more of an interesting look. 
This is the effect it acquired, after leaving it to dry and adding Walnut Stain Distress ink in the crackles for more contrast. 

You can notice the different sizes of cuts, which make it very beautiful. Obviously, the centre and focal point needed to be the wonderful Mo Manning image; so I only added to the frame a gold coloured embellishment in each corner. 

Image is coloured with Copics,  and the metal brads, sentiment and papers are from my stash. 

I hope that I hear from you what do you really think about this project. It would be fun if you leave a message here, but you can also come and join us for some Clubhouse fun on our Fb page, HERE, and if you have already used this image before, you can share your link it with me. 

If this is the first time that you've seen this Digital image and would like to give it a try, you can purchase it instantly, by clicking HERE. It is not a complicated image to colour, and it's really a wonderful one for a man's card or gift!! 

Big hugs to you, and I hope you have a wuuunderful week!!! Blessings sent your way my friend. 

I shall enter this project into Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge

Hugs, Rosette
