As mentioned before I finally got to play with some metal over the weekend. Well, I had the tools and everything here for a while now, like half a year but never really managed to create anything worthwhile with it. I have always admired the Paper Artsy projects using metal and I've been inspired after seeing a frame at a recent Artsy Crafts Event. I embossed some blue metal and sanded it to make the script "pop".
The flower was made from silver metal with a flower stamped on, cut out and made into a rose type flower (with my added extra bits in the centre). Check out the Paper Artsy videos on You Tube, there is a great tutorial for making your own.
The little shadow box frame has just been coloured with Viva Inka-Gold Paste, I love that stuff.
This is being entered into a few challenges. First of all there is The Stampsmith Challenge where the challenge is to use something new. And as it's my first proper metal project I reckon it qualifies. Also the Simon says Stamp and Show Challenge where the theme is Metal. And last but not least Happy Daze have started a challenge on their facebook page. It's a fab shop I have been ordering a fair few stamps from recently and they also stock the metal and Viva products I used on this projects.
