Victorian Elegance In A New Light

I have used a gorgeous stamp on this card which I bought from here, as you can see she is very demure and elegant, but because I added a pretty edge at the top of the card as you can see the border punch has given her a risquΓ© look … Crafting Porn!!! Get them out for the lads 😳

With the frantage I actually tried something different for myself, I have used it usually with splodges on a card but this time I wanted to try and paper piece her dress with it and wahoo it worked beautifully … apart from the cleavage bit :mrgreen: So instead of paper piecing I have Frantage pieced!!!

Anyway it’s Saturday and so far a glorious day but won’t hold my breath and what is Saturday … class day today at Cottage Crafts and Marina had a new Frantage Embossing kit in so I have used on my card for the girls to try out as a new technique for them. I have also used the Distress Stains which will be another first for them.

    This is so funny, you crack me up! I love her dress! The frantage looks amazing. And I love the colours that you have chosen, just so very feminine…though maybe not as feminine as the young lady appears to be lol. A great card Shirl. Any male images in your stash??? lol

    Oh you are some woman, what with craft porn and all that. That is certainly a new one for me!!!!!!
