Tutorial: Sassy frosting

Wooo..a bit scary first Tutorial, 
With no clue what to bring you and wanting to give you something new I turned to my friend Marion for help.
She's always so full of ideas and she gave me a few.
So now I bring you gorgeous frosted edges on your papers.
Be aware Picture heavy!!  

What you need is White Gesso or thick white paint.
Plastic foil 
And a paper (the darker paper the better this looks)

I cut up my background paper the size I want.

Tear up a piece of the plastic foil and make a little ball with it...

Paint the gesso on something you can make a little mess on..

dip the ball in the gesso, not too much at a time.
You should try it out on a piece of paper your throwing away first 
so you know how much to put on..

Tap it around the edge of the paper

And then you end up with beautiful frosted edges on your paper.

Here is the card I made with the paper
The stamp I used is called Tammy, and will be released on Saturday .
You will find her over at Funky kits 
I've colored her with Copic's and Prisma colors .
Hope you enjoyed my first tutorial and if you have any question just ask ;)
