Hello Frame Card

I'm glad we are having regular 'Anything Goes' weeks here as they are perfect for me. I often make things using Tando bits that don't fit in with our themes. This is one such card:

I was playing with a few bits a couple of weeks ago for a theme of faux metal, and one thing I did was use this frame from the ~{Scalloped Nested Circles Pack}~.
I ran it through the Cuttlebug in an embossing folder first, then painted it with Bronze acrylic paint. Then I added some blue patina acrylic paint and finally some Bora Bora Fresco paint with my finger. I just kept adding bits of all three paints until I had the right look to it.

I inked through the centre circle of the ~{Dotted Star Mask}~ and stamped this cute man in the middle. I then added clean water to his face and, after a little bit, I dabbed it with a paper towel to make his face white rather than the yellow ink.

I finished off with some alphabet stamps.
