By the Tide Box Frame Picture

No card today but a box frame picture. I picked up a few of these box frames a while ago quite cheaply but haven't got around to filling them up till now. This one has some cut up pieces of mount board that have been stamped and then had clear embossing powder over them - take a look

It uses a whole load of blue inks - past and present and some white craft ink too. When the tiles were inked and dry I dabbed all over them with a Vesamark ink pad and then covered them with clear embossing powder. When the heat is applied it gives a glazed ceramic tile effect.
I had to put a few layers on but I think the end result is perfect and I'm definitely going to have another go at this.

Craft time has been a bit scarce recently as dad's condition is deteriorating rapidly. I've got the Dr, care nurse and district nurses coming today as we need to install a hospital bed for him - not looking forward to that - it all feels very scary!.

Thanks for visiting - see you soon xx
