The Big Guy

Well I wasted last night and most of this afternoon playing about with stencils and embossing pastes, what I discovered was 1) it's not as easy as it looks and 2) one make of embossing paste takes on colour from the colour card is on as it dries, as I wanted sparkly white a sort of bluey/green wasn't quite what I was looking for, the winner by a long chalk was the Poppy Stencil glossy white, scattered glamour dust on it while it was wet and got just the effect I wanted, now I just need to work out some kind of card design! Got fed up of trying so decided to do something else , haven't used  my stampendous Santa this year so giving him an airing or rather think he's in a frantage blizzard, this is the kind of card I like making so it came together fairly quickly except I tried talking on the phone at the same time and spilt frantage ep everywhere!
