Tracy had a blog Candy offering some of her empty Guinness cans that had been flattened. I was the very lucky delighted winner. Been itching to have a play but other projects kept getting in the way.
Finally got my opportunity. Watercolour board given an initial layer of Distress Stains (DS) in weathered wood. Now I know why everyone is raving about these stains. Layers of stamping using Paper Artsy stamps and DI initial layers stamped in yellow and blue next layers in dark green. Some torn and embossed Glassine paper just seemed right at home on top. Next using Paper Artsy dies cut the metal in flowers and leaves. The metal cuts just as well as any other metal I've used. Now to colour my flowers, having just received the new Marvy Le Plume alcohol ink markers and some Copic refill inks gave these a try with great results. Finally the metal was embossed some on TSS embossing plates and some in Cuttlebug folders. Because the metal is a little thicker and maybe more brittle with some of the embossing it split in places adding yet another layer and dimension to the flowers.
