Silver Lady

Hello.  Welcome.  Over at PaperArtsy the theme for the next few weeks is shiny stuff.  Now I love working with metal foil.  It gives such stunning results.  I admit to getting frustrated when it gets marked and it is a major challenge to photograph, but generally I love it.  I was taken with Keren's post where she starts by making a card with painted metal.  Whilst waiting for paint to dry I looked at her second card.  Love the stamped image and stitch detail and came up with this......


I cut the metal using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die.  I don't have stazon so I stamped Winter Wonderland Plate 6 using versamark and embossed with black embossing powder.  I used a paint brush around the edges to soften the lines before I heated the powder.  I was going to add some more stitch detail like Keren did but decided it didn't need.  I mounted on a green pearlescent card base and added three wood stars.

  10. The stamping looks really good. With Archival the stamp has a tendency to slip and blur the design, should have thought of Versamark! And you were right to keep it simple, the image shines out!
