You've been framed

Today I'm showing a technique I discovered some time ago on the Tando blog, one that got me really excited! Come by the Craft Barn blog to read up on the details!

Tando Frame
DecoArt paints
DecoArt metallic Lustre
Distress Oxides
Stencils: TCW Mini Specimen TCW454S; Imagination Crafts Drop Screen MA24; Tim Holtz Mini layering stencils set 9

I used Wow! Embossing powders, Melt-It and Tea Rose mould to make my black and gold flower embellishments.

    Thanks so much for adding it to our Melt It challenge at AVJ

  4. It's an under used technique Christine which is a shame, thanks for bringing it to our attention again with this amazing card which has a fabulous vintage feel to it.

  6. Encore une très belle idée !!!
    Et qui donne un résultat sublime... Je vais là encore, essayer de m'en souvenir car j'ai comme tu le sais, de nombreux chipboards Tando encore en stock, que j'aime toujours bien entendu. Je les garde précieusement, justement pour ce genre d'utilisation où ils sont très bien mis en valeur ;-)
    Merci Christine. Superbe réa.
    Bises du soir frisquettes... :))
