Frantage makes another appearance.. LOVE IT!


Hi Bestest Blogging Buddies..

Today's card is my DT card for Totally Gorjuss....  the requirement was Swirls...   and this is what I came up with.  I've got to say.... I really had fun making this card and am really pleased with how it's turned out!

I used Rosetta from Sylvia at Wee Stamps...  isn't she gorgeous?  I was inspired colourwise by Dena (thank you Dena) who'd used this image a week or so ago...  and as I felt I needed to get away from pink (!!) for a little while, I thought her colour choice was fab.  I used Copics AND Promarkers. Then the fun started...

I used a Go Kreate Large Frilly #6 to cut both the card and also the image frame..  then cut my DP with the same die.  I distressed the edge of the DP first.... then stamped a swirly flourish onto it with the same ink that I'd distressed with.  Then I got out my Frantage.........  this stuff is just so good to work with...  so glitzy... and it gives such a fabulous effect when you just sprinkle it around and heat from underneath.

I found a bit of seambinding in my stash which matched - together with some lace...  then finished off with a DooHickey Swirl Die - and of course, some glitter for Rosetta's wings... 

I think this has to be my favourite card of all that I've made lately, and that's in no small part down to Sylvia's fabulous image......  Hope you like it too!

Hugs to all - Have a fabulous weekend..... and I hope you'll say hi if you've dropped by..
