Hope your comfy!.... Ive got a little carried away with my pics today.
Its also a new challenge at The Ribbon Girls which is
Love You or Valentineand there's a £10 voucher up for grabs and a LOTV stamp.
Ive finally succumbed to 'Frantage'
When I first started with card making one of the first tools I bought was a heat gun and well I just embossed everything gold insight. Hubby said I had the 'Midas Touch!' ha ha.... back then, as I always had to emboss the edges of ALL my cards
Frantage is by Stampendous whom Im sure you've heard of already and Ive been lucky to do a few workshops with 'Fran' when she has visited the UK.
At Christmas I received a couple of the Frantage products and its only now Ive dug out my heat gun again to play, although I did use the Mica flakes in shaker cards at Christmas too.
If you want to more what Im talking about then HERES a few of her videos on Youtube.
Once I had watched them I couldnt wait to have a play.
This is what I made using Bonny Tilda. I wanted to create an aged Shabby chic look with lots of texture.
As always I painted with Distress Re-Inkers and then coated with Distress Rock Candy
I then edged with a mix of Frantage products plus some of my EB from my stash and I mixed in alot of white.
Jill at TheStampman offers the full range of colours and if you are stuck which to choose the kits are great and if you are like me the pink and the blue are great for the Vintage Shabby look. Ive listed below in Inklinkz so it should take you there direct.
I also Frantaged all my die cut pieces to add that extra Vintage Texture.
Jill also told me there's new colours due out soon.
Mary and Andrea at the Ribbon girls, as always sent me the most beautiful products to use. The products Ive used are Cheesecloth, Vintage Pink Fluted edge Sheer Ribbon, Kort and Godt Ivory Rolled Roses, Pink Velvet Lace, Sian Pink Vintage Seam Binding and IvoryTulle
