What's French for something that isn't what it appears to be? Well that's what Isabelle asked everyone on the Craft Barn blog at the end of last week, now I knew the answer but even I had to think for a moment!!
Here is my card and I chose to use faux enamelling, I stamped and embossed with gold embossing powder. After it had cooled I painted with cheap bleach, being very careful not to inhale the fumes or spill it. When dry I painted with distress ink and finally used Diamond Glaze to give dimension and the enamel finish.
There are more pictures on the Craft Barn Blog and so many different faux finishes too. The DT team have been really inventive this week.

Well I'm back from my hols:0) Hubby and I travelled to Italy and went to see Arezzo, Sienna, Florence, Rome and Assisi. We had a fabulous time but it was absolutely exhausting, I think we walked for most of the week, my knees are groaning LOL
This is a wonderful ceiling from an historic building in the centre of Florence and I loved it more than all the rest, except for the Sistine of course!
This is me, in the centre of Rome, taking a well earned rest after lunch and getting ready for another long walk!!!! It was worth it though.
Whilst I was in Rome I met up with Giovanna my DT team mate from the Craft Barn! It was excellent, we had an Italian ice cream, yum yum and a few giggles too and she gave me a beautiful heart that she had made, soo clever, wish I could sew like this
WOW It's gorgeous!!! I am a very lucky lady:0)
I'm making my way down my comments list and will visit you soon, have a wonderful weekend my friends, Gay x
