Tilda's Picture Frame

Here is a picture frame I made to showcase Tilda Hanging on Ornament. I think she is adorable, and this frame looks great on the coffee table. This also makes a great gift for someone special! I bought these frames at Michael's, they are really inexpensive, and look like a million bucks when completed!
I used my Graphic 45 Christmas Past paper for the design of this frame. I traced the frame shape onto the paper, and cut it out. I painted the entire frame with a copper colored acrylic paint, the adhered the design paper to the front. I then used my Walnut Stain Distress ink to daub the edges of the frame for a finished look.
I added some prima flowers that I glimmer misted in gold and Red Velvet Glimmer mist. I also added a pearl sheer leaf and a Tim Holtz key that says secret. I feel like keeping secrets at Christmas is a lot of the fun! Keeping gifts secret, secret plans, secret Santa, etc. It is so much fun! I also added a dark red ribbon and bow to finish off the project.
I colored Tilda with copics
Skin - E000, E00, R20
Hair - E51, E57, E59
Outfit - E40, E41, E42, R32, R29
Ornament - R24, R27, R29, G24, Y15
I also added stickles to the ornament to give it some sparkle!
