Isn’t that picture beautiful? Makes me want to get out my cake stands and have afternoon tea. Here’s my take on it 

 

It’s a play on ‘hang in there’- with the frame hanging on the card. The frame was fun to make using Golden Glimmer craft metal

  I’ve simply stamped using Black Stazon onto the metal using a new set from the stamp company ‘The Ton’ using this Vintage Frames set 

Vintage Frames

It’s a larger set and I loved the ornate frame. I simply started pushing an embossing tool into the metal where I wanted it raised, then turned the metal over, and pushed out the metal where the marks where showing on the reverse. 

It makes for a fun effect and certainly gives bags of dimension! 

If you fancy playing with us- you have until next Tuesday and please use the photo as an inspiration point. You don’t need to own craft metal but obviously, if you join in and win, then you’d get to spend the voucher and have your very own stash. Link up your card here  

Well, I’ve walkies to do, so better hop to it. I’d much rather be sleeping on the sofa though…like that was even an option. I’m busy doing a commission for Crafts Beautiful right now, and I need to get it finished! 

See you when I’ve come back from the dog barking at every living thing! x

    Dogs do that to protect you. Don’t you feel protected? Actually, I think they just like that sound of their own voice. Anyway, your card is so darn clever “hang in there”. Like that stamp set too but creating the focal frame with metal is really brilliant.

      I think embarrassment rather than a feeling of protection takes over!! thanks for the lovely comment! I obviously need protecting from pigeons & squirrels! 😉
