Four Frames......Well only one actually!

This card uses the Four Frames set from the mini catalogue.  I plan to make a different card using each of the frames but keeping the colour palette the same to show the different effects that can be achieved.  The colours I've chosen from my Colour Coach are - elegant eggplant, melon mambo and old olive.

On this one I've used elegant eggplant as my card base, melon mambo as my mount and old olive for the ribbon strip.

Here's how I made it  -
I repeatedly stamped the large image from Bliss in the 3 colours (sometimes stamping off) on whisper white card.  I then embossed it using the Square Lattice embossing folder.  I love the effect this gives you.  There's so much texture that it almost feels and looks like material.  I used a very elegant frame from the set and stamped in elegant eggplant.  I think this frame would look fab embossed in gold or black.  I then stamped "for you" from the Occasional Greetings set in old olive.  This was punched out using the Decorative Label Punch.  The matting around the frames were made by punching out 2 frames in each colour - elegant eggplant and melon mambo.  Then cutting the frames in half - first one horizontally and second one vertically.  Then piece the cut outs to the back of the label to create a frame effect.

Hope you come back again to see what I come up with for the other frames.

Thanks Aileen x

This is simply brilliant... yes, I do agree... such a nice texture. And the stamped images look so delicate and lovely.
