Time for Pretty!

Halloween is behind us and it time for cute and sexy and pretty and girly again!

Nobody is more girly than one of my friends who has a birthday coming up this month.  I purchased the beautiful Betty's Boudoir digis back when they were released....and then kind of "hoarded" them in a way!  haha.  I'm sure we all do it with scrapbook supplies; I do it with digis too.  I save them until I can make something special with them, looking forward to the first time I get to colour them.

Considering how excited I was to make something with her, it did NOT go smoothly.

First, I keep seeing these awesome shabby-chic makes with Frantage.  Well apparently there's more than one kind, and I bought the wrong one.  I heated and heated waiting for these to melt until I scorched the paper.  It smoked so bad I turned it over to make sure it wasn't on fire!
Second, I've been saving this awesome rub-on and gem combo...but when I used it, it barely showed! (both pictured below.  Thankfully the frantage covered most of the burn)

Third, I had the perfect frame picked out for my Silhouette, but the paper I wanted was just too flimsy and all the fine flourishes ripped.  I tried again with a more sturdy paper, but only slightly better results.  In the end I cut out just a portion of the frame to use.

When all was said and done the card took WAY longer than it should have to put together, but I really love it!

Copics used:
Skin - E000, 00, 21, 11, 04
Hair - E47, 37, 34
Undies - RV21, 23, 25, 29
Stockings - C03, 05, 07, 110

If anyone has some tips about Frantage I'd be grateful if you left a comment!  I think  I'll need to do some YouTube research before I try again.  Thanks for stopping by!
