I was totally stoked about this week’s StampInsanity Challenge. We were to use something metallic on your project - papers, embellies, hardware, etc. Well, being a silversmith…this was SO up my alley! Short of making a ring using one of Beth’s images…I knew I wanted to go all out and be as crazy and metallic as possible!
A couple of weeks ago, I experimented a bit with regular old tin foil. And I enjoyed it so much, I wanted to do it again! Click HERE to see that post. So I used a Fiskars Texture Plate (wood grain), and rubbed my foil on it. Awesome result. I happen to also have a wood grain stamp that I thought would be cool to use too. So I stamped it and brushed Perfect Pearls on the image. It’s a little tough to make out the colors, but I used Purple and Blue. Both fabulous metallics!
But I felt that the foil was too overpowering, so I layered some vellum on top of it. I love how it muted the foil, but allowed the imprint of the wood grain to show through. And that little piece of holographic fabulousness??? That’s actually a tiny playing card that I received from Kathi, which I used my Drippy punch on.
I used eyelets and brads to hold everything in place, since glue would have been a pain in the you-know-what. And of course…the focus of it all is that fabulous sentiment from StampInsanity.
I printed it on white cardstock and sprayed the heck out of it with Patina and Rum Raisin Glimmer Mist. Plus, I popped a little Dew Drop on it. Metallic enough for ya??? Subtlety is not my specialty!
Now go and check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz! And then, it’s your turn to show us some Metal Mania!!!
