Bister background save

A few moths ago I was a little heavy handed with some black Bister, I never throw anything out so this went into the UFO pile for later. So with Christmas and night sky in mind I pulled out my very very dark Bister background and revived it with a little sparkly Frantage which has blue, white and glitter embossing powder in it.

Here is a close up of the frantage, you can see the blue and white but not the glitter, it's the perfect wintry night sky for these deer.

  7. I always learn something when I pop into your blog and today is no exception. I too have a few very dark backgrounds with playing with Brusho's and what a fabulous idea to add Frantgae...which I love and have a few tubs of. (I tend to stick to the golds, black, whites etc but will now be looking at the blue tub) I am Off to give this a try. Thank you so much for the fabulous inspiration and your stunning card x

  8. Christine, I can not stop looking at this wonderful card! So little can do so much !! Your background in combination with this mysterious Frantage powder looks like a million dollars. And what is the name of this beautiful MB cutter, the one with the fawns? Lovely!

    1. hi Bozena, the Memory box die is Deer Family Circle #99575
