butterfly dream

a wet dreary day in brighton
i had a free afternoon so i wanted to play with my frantage again!

the background was crumpled card sprayed with cosmic shimmers, a little vinatge photo scooched over the raised crumples, then dried and ironed flat

originally i stamped the butterfly postcard on the surface but it didnt show too well so i stamped it again on a piece of card coloured with the new spring colours and a crackle stamp ovear the top.  i embossed the stamp with black powder and added photo corners
i added the word 'dream' coloured with cosmic shimmer embossing powder and a little frantage over the top, melted with my trusty chefs blowtorch!

tip of the day;
i sometimes find that detailed dies will tear thick card [not grungeboard of course] when removing them from the die -- as this word die did to me!!  so i used a piece of cereal box lining paper - the bag that the cereal comes in - between the die and card and it helped in removing the cut out piece.
