Anything Goes with Vintage/Frantage option


Hello, Friends! We are back with a new challenge for you at Midweek Magnolias. This week we have a real easy one… 

Anything Goes with
Vintage/Frantage option


If you’re like me, you like to be at the forefront of some of the newest crafting products. And I gotta tell ya, I am all about the Frantage Vintage Embossing Enamels from Stampendous. I can’t get enough of them. 

 
This week I used “Sweet Pea Tilda” from the Once Upon a Time collection on my card. I don’t often color using the no-lines method but I wanted to challenge myself this week and made a go of it. I used Aged Ivory Frantage around her frame then distressed with Brushed Corduroy. 

My papers are from Pion this week and I get mine at C’est Magnifique. I added a flower spray using Prima, Kort & Godt, WOC and a Marianne Designs Rolled Rose die cut. My tag is a Magnolia Tilda Ticket die cut distressed and stamped with Magnolia postage stamps. 

 
The lace was white but I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist. The birdhouse chipboard is from Maya Road, embossed with Aged Teal Frantage. I added a bird charm from Nunn Designs and vintage seam binding from WOC. The pearls from Queen and Co. in the corners finish the card. 

 

 
I’m entering this card in the following challenges: 

Totally Tilda – Postage
Simply Magnolia – Layers and Lace
Make It Monday – Anything Goes 

We would love for you to join us this week and don’t forget to stop over at the DT’s blogs for inspiration. 

Hugz,

Awwww I LOVE THIS!! I'm like you too and always look for the new products coming out. I must admit this stuff is really addicting. I bought some and shared it with my sister. About 5 different colors. She was like OMG I HAVE TO BUY SOME MORE! LOL! I've even done it to a strand of pearls but if you hold it too long they'll melt. LMBO! Pretty papers and great coloring!! Hugs!
