Thumping Technique: Faux Stitched Fabulous Frame

n today’s video, Melanie will show you how to make the Fabulous Frame look like a stitched frame for your cards and projects with the thumping technique. All it takes is a brush tip water-based marker! She also does some simple Spectrum Noir coloring on the pine cone from Stately Flowers 6, and finish the card with some two step stamping with the coordinating Fabulous Frame Fillers images to add more detail and pops of color. Greeting is from Fabulous Frame Fillers.

Thanks, everyone!  You'll be great!  It's easy.  Just take your time, check it before you stamp, don't forget to huff! And then don't be afraid to touch it up. :)  I have another look I am going to share soon with this stitched frame..

Gorgeous card and a great way of using the frame set once again. And, I must say I love that pine cone image too.
