Frantage mad!

Hi everyone
So this was one of the first cards I used frantage for, and I totally overdid it, but really don't care haha! I love the effect, and I just couldn't stop myself - I literally frantaged everything - papers, image, diecuts, the butterfly... I had fun ;) The cats freaked out at the sound of the heat tool, but after a few minutes they were cool and just went back asleep :)

Image - LOTV Summer Days
Papers - Country Companions (not that you can see much of it with all the frantage :P)
Ribbon and Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearl Trim, Pearl flower trim, cheesecloth, charm and silver butterfly - Ribbon Girl
La-la-land Hearts Banner Die
Cheery Lynn French Pastry Die
Spellbinders Floral Ovals Die
Whimsy Ticket Die and Sentiment
Purple Butterfly from stash
Computer generated sentiment on the bottom
Coloured with Promarkers
Glossy Accents, Stickles, Liquid Pearls
Shabby Pink and Shabby White Frantage Powder
Edges of everything distressed and inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink

  1. What can I say Tanya other than totally stunning, from the sweet image right thought to the lovely use of Frantage - had to but some white the other day after seeing you use it, before then I shied away from the paler colours.

    I am so pleased you have joined us again at both Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More challenges, it's lovely to see you.
