  1. Your card is beautiful Alicia, I love the image and your fabulous colouring. Great backing papers and design. Thank you for joining our challenge at Dream Valley and we look forward to seeing you again. Jennifer DT member x

  2. Hi Alicia. Saw your card on K & C. It looks amazing....especially the hair! What is that white texture on the background? I am seeing it more lately :)

    1. Hi Tracy. That white texture is called Frantage. It is a chunky embossing powder that is sprinkled on top but heated from beneath. I use Shabby White as it it pretty universal and has the beautiful gold flecks in it too.
