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.

Using ColorBox Rollagraph Jumbo Handle, ColorBox Rollagraph Wicked Black Ink, and Rollagraph Simple Dots apply to prepared canvas.

Adhere to canvas.
