Altered Photo Frames

I am sooo happy that my friends Ash  & Tejal remembered my special day and sent me their wishes along with a beautiful card..thanks dears..
The butterfly is awesome and I just lovvvvedd the color, the sentiments and everything about the card.:)

This time I have altered a few photo frames.. and I am happy that they came out well...
Just like cards, you can use patterned papers on these frames to create the desired background..embellish them and add sentiments too..
I made three in all.. 2 of which I have posted here..I missed to get a pic of the 3rd before gifting it to my friend.

Painted the plain wooden frame with dark brown acrylic and glued the patterned paper using modpodge. Edged the frame with gold color ink to sort of give it a vintage(?) look..
Embellished with a handmade flower, stamped  butterflies, punched flowers, blings and buttons.

Created the base of the frame with the patterned paper. Quilled some flowers and leaves and embellished with buttons and blings. Here I stamped the sentiment using distress inks.

I have entered the frame to {Ippity} Opportunity challenge and Wee Memories
