In the Frame at Try it on Tuesday




Hello, it's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this fortnight the theme is 'In the Frame', as usual it's up to you how you interpret the theme, as long as there is a 'Frame'.
For all the details and some wonderful inspiration from the rest of the DT, please pop over to the main blog.
My main backing layer was pale pink cardstock before embossing with a Tim Holtz EF that had been brayered with Victorian Velvet DI, a piece of vellum was stamped with French Script and then heat embossed with white powder.  The  frame was die cut from two oval Nesties and distressed with Frayed Burlap. My 'bright' silver butterfly was brushed with Autumn Bronze gilding wax to complete the shabby look.
This is a scheduled post as we are having a few days in the Lakes, unfortunately it doesn't look as if the weather will be very good.  Hope last week wasn't' Summer'.
Thanks for visiting and I'll catch up with you soon.
Avril xx
