Frantage anyone?

Tee hee that sounds a bit funny but basically at the Craft Barn the design team have all this week been playing with Frantage.
Welcome here, I hope you are well and it's SATURDAY oh Yeah always a good day!!! I'm off  for a wonderful day at the Craft Barn Extravaganza, wahoo 2 whole days of crafting goodness. So much to see and I get to watch all the brilliant demos by crafting legends, have you been before? Well worth a visit if you can get there!!!



There are many ways to use embossing powders but I chose to triple emboss a die cut. When it was cool I stamped an image on the top in Stazon. I didn't like the result so I reheated the EP and swirled the design with my pokey tool and then I was a happy bunny. A great big pearl and some neutral papers and I was done. Thank you for dropping by, Gay xx







Here is a list of the products that I used, sorry it's in a looong list, not really sure how to rectify this,. ah well technology...................................... works most of the time LOL

Fabulous card Gay, i love the way you've layered the front with those lovely mocha colours and the 'frantage' are you sure that's not a rude word, is fantastic! So much texture, have a wonderful crafty weekend, if I wasn't with Charlie I could be very jealous:))

Beautiful & elegant card Gay! The triple embossed piece, earth tones and the abstract lines are fabulous. Hope you are enjoying the weekend, Shirleyx

WOW . . .this is totally brilliant Gay. I love everything about it.

Having watched some demo's yesterday, I realise that I am an impatient crafter . . . I don't have the patience to keep layering for a great effect! You clearly do!

Gorgeous card Gay. I really love the unique layout; it really highlights the embossed piece. It has somewhat of a art nouveau feel to it. :D
