The new challenge has posted at House of Cards, and I hope you join us as we use Metallics in our cards this month.
When I first saw this as the challenge I was super excited. What was I going to make? There's Mynn's video and all of the fun metal things I could add to a card....And then I was overwhelmed--LOL-There are so many things I could do!
So I [finally!] settle on a metallic background called Eroded Metal from Tim Hotlz (his Chemistry 102 class and his 3rd Compendium of Curiosities book).
I learned this eroded metal technique in Tim Holtz's Chemistry 102 class but I found a video of him demonstrating this at a show. You can see it here.
Here is how my background looked before I added anything:
I love the patina feel and the copper. Very cool!
After layering some black inks, stamps, and the sentiment, I too this picture so that you can see that the metallic shiny is still there:
The happy birthday are Tim's Sizzix thinlets, the gears is a stencil from Clear Scraps, and the number stamps at the bottom are from 7 Gypsies. I used Tim's Distress Paints for the technique.
Thank you for stopping by today! There is more beautiful inspiration from our DT so be sure to see their projects. And we can't wait to see what you make!
I would also like to link this up to Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes.
Until next time my friends...stay golden ;)
