More Fun from Saturday


Hi everyone.  Sharing another card I made after my fun day of playing with some crafty friends a couple of days ago.  Shirl brought some Aged Copper Frantage.  So cool!!  I sprinkled some over versamark stamped spots and heated.  There's bits of green in the embossed background, but hard to see in the photo.  Very subtle, but really beautiful.  I didn't want to cover it up, so I added a small die-cut to one side and then a strip at the bottom, which has a copper embossed sentiment (plain copper embossing powder was used).  Thanks so much for bringing this Shirl! xx

Another masculine card for my stash, although I have the feeling Jer might claim this for himself. :)

I used a couple of snippets (one for the leaf sprig, and another for the sentiment) of some lovely striped (subtle) black card stock I got from my friend Christine.  I'm heading over for some fun at the Playground.








Stamps:  Fun Birthday Sentiments (Happy Little Stampers); Gorgeous Grunge (SU!)
Paper:  White (Neenah); Black (gift from Christine)
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories & Tools:  Meadow Leaf die (Memory Box), Aged Copper Frantage (Stampendous), Copper embossing powder (unknown), heat tool

Challenges:
Snippets Playground - Week 220

I love this, beautifully CAS. The bronze Frantage looks so rich against the black ..... another item to add to the wish list 😊 xx

Julie B said...

Gorgeous as ever Loll. Nothing better than getting together to share with crafty minded friends.
I love frantage but it always blows all over, mostly onto the floor when you emboss! If I can I add some dots of Versamark pen to keep them in place while I heat them up. :)
