My First Attempt At Frantage - and the MANFLU!!

I made this over the weekend, but I've not been able to post it till now 'cos I've got the Manflu!! No wonder the poor dears take to their beds and complain when they have this. I must admit that for the last 2 days I've been functioning at a very low level (breath, cough, groan - breath, cough, wheeze) So to all you brave men who soldier on through this - I commend you lol.
I've been trying to come up with something for this months Artistic Outpost challenge, which is travel. For this I've made an inky background, then used the stamps from the Paris Exposition plate. I've thrown the kitchen sink at it in terms of embossing powders and in real life it look really nice when you twist it about and it catches the light. I've used 'That Special Touch Of' metal embossing enamels in copper, gold and silver, and I really do like these.  I  enjoyed making this very much, and it's something I will definitely try again.
Thanks very much for looking (sniff) x
