Hello! This week our challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show is 'metal-ology', so we are focusing on anything metal: real of faux metal, metal paint, embossing, metallic embellishments, anything you can think of. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this great theme. You mustn't miss the projects of my fellow DT members, simply stunning.
I love using metal on my project, both real metal and techniques that produce faux-metal effects. I made a heavy metal tag, and it was so much fun to make.
The tag was completely inked with alcohol inks (pitch black, juniper and ginger), letting it dry a short while and then going over it a second time. Let dry completely,
The wings were lots of fun to make. First I die cut them using Tim Holtz Layered Angel Wings die, from one of my favourite surfaces, Wendy Vecchi's Clearly for Art modeling film. The die coordinates perfectly with the Wings embossing folder (to the right on the photo).
The three pairs of wings were embossed. Love this look.
I hope you will show us your projects using metal this week, as always, our great sponsor Simon Says Stamp gives a $50 gift voucher to one random participant.
Thank you for coming by! Have a great week!
