man, was it hard to get a good picture of this card! still not happy with it...the image has a layer of clear ep which caused a glare.
chipboard frame from a mega pack from Joann's, smooshed (technical term) it on the white ink pad, then stamped aida cloth in regal rose, flowers in rose red, ferns in true thyme, dtp'd with always artichoke
image is colored with prismacolor pencils and baby oil for blending (yes, same as using gamsol!) and then one layer of clear ep
framed image is popped up
cuttlebugged another paintchip as I liked how it turned out the other day and I was too lazy to do a background!! there you have the truth!
the oval sentiment is on slider die chipboard made from a pasta box, both are popped up
the ribbon covers the paintchip number/name
well, fiddle...after uploading and seeing this...the ribbon is pink, closer to the flowers! can't even see the detail on the frame or the girl... guess you'll have to go to Mary's after I give it to her! lol!!

OH MY WORD! I LOVED your details (and, of course, your technical terms!). What GREAT pains you took with that little frame.... and SO worth it!! LOVE IT!! AND.... the C/B'ed paint chip.... ACK!!!!!!!!!!! I MUST steal (er...ah... borrow) that idea!!!
Honesty is always the best policy, Dawn--and so glad you 'came clean' because I would swear that frame came out of the package like that (awesome work) and the CB'd paintchip is a great idea which will now help me get rid of some of my stash!!
