Something New and some Gold

Still not really feeling like making cards, good thing there is the alterable mountain waiting to be dented.

This frame stared a brown sort of singed colour, knocked that back with daubers first in a cream colour and then juniper.   Next cut up some cotton fat squares with sizzix bigz dies, found the best way to do this is to place the fabric on the die and then a piece of card and then the cutting plate.  This way you also get a card die cut for a base.    The cotton treated to a starch treatment and while drying the card bases were sprayed with glimmer mist.    The frame was stamped with Artemio flourish stamps and embossed with WOW fine gold ep.  Cotton shapes layered up with button stitched together then glued to the card base which was stuck to the frame.    Some tissue tape has also been wrapped round the front of the frame top and bottom.    In that wonderful box of broken jewellery there was a memory wire bangle, wrapped it round the top of the completed frame.
