In The Frame

Well flippin' 'eck, I finally managed it - only 3
days late! Friday's Daring Card Makers Challenge ...........

This week I’d like you to use a FRAME or FRAMES on your card. You can use any type of frame you so wish. How about a die cut frame or a hand cut frame. You can frame your card with brackets or flowers or how about some doodling - the choice is yours.

So with the first effort being torn up and placed in the bin (no, it really couldn't be saved, honest!), I picked up one of my bargain 20p BG Aged and Confused (yes, that could describe me too!) papers and there, sitting quietly, were my Craftwork Cards frames that I bought way back in March. I chalked the embossed dots in
similar colours to the paper, then dabbed all over with TH Distress ink picked up with a cotton wool ball, then Diamond Glazed some of the dots. The ribbon is tied to the frame. The Maya Road chip flower is painted with Adirondack in copper and the other flowers are Prima, all held together with a brad. I inked the edges of the frame and the card and voila! not too bad a result. It turned out quite Autumnal!

Hope this means my mojo is back?
