FRAME-ing Up for a Good Week at CASology

CASology is back this week with a challenge cue card that is sure to bring 
you lots of ideas and plenty of ways to craft them! 

I thought of picture frames, my frame dies, getting framed (setup lol), a frame of a movie...then I remembered my Simon Says Stamp Old School Sunglasses dies! I die cut them and coated them with a few layers of Ranger Ink Verdigris embossing powder. I love the marbled/speckled look of this EP. 

I foiled the center of the sunglasses to make them shiny and reflective and inlaid them back into the sunglasses. I wanted a cool and funky "landing pad" for my image and sentiment, so I splashed some Heidi Swapp Reactive Mist on the card and foiled it too...oooh la la!

I stamped the sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps twice in Jet Black Archival Ink since I was trying to stamp onto foil. Thank goodness I used my MISTI because I had to stamp it twice to get a good, dark, crisp impression :)

You've got to swing by the DT blogs and check out how they framed up the cue card!
