stampendous linus and cameo

after my scary departure into the clean and white i have delved straight back into the dark side!
the linus card was edged with stampendous stamp border and lots of frantage enamels in copper and bronze ... i cant get enough of these colours!!
the background script is done with perfect pearls and the camera has caught it a bit too much - its actually very subtle.
while pondering if it needed any more decoration i had a nocturnal thought to use a medium sized rosette from tim and chopped it into 4 pieces to use as corners.  i had to liberally apply frantage to them too!

this cameo is a stampendous stamp i have used before [but no longer available sadly].
i recently bought some indigoblu flitterglu and mega flakes [brighton pier -- of course!!] which i used to stamp the frame and face.  i then restamped the frame and cut it out to give the frame some dimension with 3d pads.
3 small paper roses were coloured with black, copper and gold enamels and a little black glitter.
i edged the whole card with frantage enamel and gold mica,[ but im not sure if i overcooked it?]
halloween is on the horizon and this is aimed at that, as have a few more cards i am in process of making!

anyone not tried frantage  yet?  head to the stamp man for great prices and the entire collection
