This image from Purple Onion is one I had coloured when we were staying at my aunt's house a couple of weeks ago. I botched it this afternoon by trying to add flowers in the meadow - so instead of a landscape framed picture I had to trim it down and switch up to portrait format. It was stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with Inktense pencils.
To create the frame, I cut a piece of white card a little larger, cut the aperture, and embossed it with the Provocraft Textile Texture ef, one of my top 3 favourites. I added two coats of white acrylic paint, and sprinkled some chunky gold EP onto the second coat while it was still wet, then heated to melt the powder. Then I rubbed it with some metallic rub-ons, and added a little definition round the outer edge with a metallic pen and Stickles.
Chloe was stamped on thin watercolour paper, coloured with pencils, and is sitting on a little tuft of grass.

I don't see any inkling of anything that got botched - this is such an adorable image and a perfect way to just drop someone a note to let them know you were thinking of them! Love the embossed frame and the subtle touches of the metallic look - that bunny is just the sweetest ever!!
