artgirlz challenge 'frames and Tanda challenge in the frame

This week at the Artygirlz we were challenged to use a frame.
I made these 2 Christmas cards using Crafty Individuals Craft mounts
You can purchase a pack of 12 empty mounts,
The mounts can be covered in decorative papers, or stamped with inks, and used to embellish cards, scrapbooks, etc.
I chose to Emboss the frames but firstly Chris, I played with some inks putting a few drops of our chosen colours onto an old table mat and then diluted them with water.... then gently wiped the mount in the inks... picking up colour where we wanted it...leaving the frames to dry.
I chose the same background from CI Christmas paper book, ( I love CI papers)
Then chose images from CI Christmas image book.
I then decided to emboss the frames, again choosing a selection of CI stamps and heat embossing the top card with Verdigris and the bottom card with gold.
I have also included these in for the Tanda challenge for last week ... In the frame.
Be back soon to with the awards,
Chriss x
