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.

Speaking of skies, my heavens, Christine, this night sky is one of the most stunning I've ever seen! And to think that was a UFO - good job saving it and remembering you have it! (That second part is the bit I have trouble with, haha!) Hugs, Darnell

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

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!

That is a brilliant save, your sky is beautiful. The little bit of colour on the white is perfect too. (I have a whole UFO box).
Thanks for playing along at Christmas Card Throwdown.
