Be Grateful Mixed Media Frame

Hi to all of our ColorBox fans! 
I am so grateful to been able to create for an amazing company like ColorBox! 
I was as shocked as everyone about them closing up business but if you are like me I still love ColorBox inks!
if you don’t have ColorBox in you stash just use some of your favorite inks. 
 I am sharing how to create a fun mixed media “Be Grateful” Mixed Media Frame using ColorBox  Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and the ColorBox Clear Butterfly Stamp Set.
