A Bit of Black n White

Another built up frame using the TH dies, stamps and lots of 3d foam!!

I decided to stick to black and white this time.  The frames were coloured in fresco paints and stamped with TH images in versamark ink.  Sticky embossing powder was poured over and then heated.  Schizzle foil in the opposite colours was pressed into the sticky, hot powder.  Unfortunately I put the foil on the pediment the wrong way round which is why it's not very sharp!!  

The main TH image was stamped on white card with black stazon, the dice beads were added and the lock and key were hi-lighted with pewter treasure gold.  The crown is from a Cuttlebug die/embossing set with black gems added.

The sun came out this afternoon so I took another photo in natural day light.

A fabulous monochrome make - and amazing to see how sunlight can change the atmosphere of a make so completely.

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
