I've got a new project on the go (it's been in the cupboard awaiting inspiration for yonks!) and in the great tradition I plan to reveal it a bit at a time ... well as I get around to doing bits actually! So here beginneth ...
I have to admit to being extremely pleased with how these have turned out - only one of these items is actually metal, the rest are card finished with embossing powder.
Now I know that some of you will be unimpressed but because I haven't done this kind of this before I'm well chuffed (as they say). I started out with copper embossing powder but that was a bit too new and shiny, and I wanted distressed, so I tried again with a metallic mixture called tapestry, but that wasn't quite right either. I made my own 50/50 mix of the two and that worked really well - and even better when (while it was still warm) I stamped some texture into the finish and mangled it about a bit (I know what I mean)!!
Well you can see that I had fun can't you? The tease now is ... what am I going to DO with them? Answers on a postcard to ... ME!
