Princess Frou Frou




I thought I'd share with you a picture of the card I made for my friend Debbie's birthday. Now my friend Deborah is a princess. She'll tell you herself that she is a princess, but she's really lovely, I love that about her. She invited us to her birthday party which turned into a great night. Great company, great food, and great company. Thanks Debbie for a lovely night!

Now about the card. I know I am a little bit slack on the instructions for some of my stuff, I am just lazy about those sorts of things but I should really make the effort to share, afterall isn't that what it's all about? I just have to remember now how I did it.LOL. The base card was a pinky colour. The back ground piece was originally gloss white which I stamped with Stampin Up Medallion and En Francais and embossed with silver. Got a bit heavy handed with the old heat gun here and overheaded it. It went a bit flaky. No mistake, just a happy accident. Then I sprayed over it with glimmermist colour Peppermint Stick (love this colour) and just watered it down in one corner with a spray of water. Dried again with heat gun (which didn't help the embossing again!) Added the butterfly and the grey bit. The WISH tag was made from grunge board painted red, dried, painted with Gel Medium and then covered with Angelina Fusible Iridescent Film crystal mother of pearl colour. WISH was a rub on. Added ribbon and a flower (obvious) ummmm thats it!
