Altered Frame with Corina Finley


Corina here, to share an Altered Frame that I have created using some paint and a variety of chipboard embellishments. I have used a few techniques from stamping with Chipboard to clear embossing for a lacquer finish.

For the center of the frame, I cut my cream card to size and stamped my sentiment using black archival ink. I then painted my Spring Fresh Swirl Corner using Distress Paint. While the paint was still wet - I flipped it and pressed it onto the cream cardstock just as you would a stamp. I love the look it gives! I then applied clear embossing powder to the Swirl Corner and heat set for a lacquer finish.

For the outside Ornate Square Frame chipboard embellishment, I also used Distress Paint also and clear embossing powder. I heat set and then adhered it to the frame.

I placed the Spring Fresh Swirl Corner in the left top corner, the glass and the cream stamped cardstock behind. I placed the backing on the frame and added a few lovely roses in my colour palette.

    Thank you so much for this wonderful article! Here we all can learn a lot of useful things and this is not only my opinion! Even BLNCK corp. and confirmed it!

  3. This is a fabulous use of those intricate chippies! Genius idea to use the corner piece as a stamp before covering it with embossing powder! Bravo on that move! I think I may just have to borrow that! These pieces look wonderful together, and you have made a fantastic altered frame!
