frantaged butterflies

2 cards, quite similar

i am still playing obsessively with the frantage powders
the butterflies were stamped onto embossed card with a 'blank' made by the diffusing plates then coloured with spring inks and splattered with some biscotti pearl.  then i stamped the same butterfly image onto vellum with colours of archival and cut them out and stapled them into place on top of the stamped images.
i edged both cards with frantage first, then layered them onto corrugated card then  added tons more frantage and glitters and fragments.   i bought a wee chef's blowtorch [used for making creme brulees etc] to heat the powders from above without them blowing everywhere,, because the layers are too thick to heat from underneath.   this works a TREAT!!!  although i did singe a butterfly's wings a little but i quite liked it so its been left!
