Sweet Stamps challenge #140: Frames

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to our new weekly challenge on Sweet Stamps and this time it's all about FRAMES!
Here is my framed card: the  outer frame is foil dry embossed  piece covered with a LOT of clear embossing ink , embossing powders and Pearl Ex pigments. Then I made the inner frame , using a simple chipboard, arranging the frame and making this Faux Cloisonne finish.
First you cover the chipboard with a think layer of clear embossing  ink. Then you add 3-4 or even 5 layers of heat embossed black powder. Next you add a bit of Pearl Ex pigments and then heat it all over. When  your frame is totally hot you stamp into the hot surface and let it dry. I made this with a cling stamp and I am not sure if it's safe to use clear stamps, so if you want to experiment, use a $1 stamp and pray for the results (unless you have a lot of stamps you don't care about. )
Next I stamped the lady's image over the white cardstock, heat embossed it with black powder and misted all over for the nice background color using LSG mists.
A few flowers and FWAB pearls and this card is all done.




Now it's your turn: make something framed and and you can win  great goodies from Sweet Stamps shop!
