Hello friends. Today is the mix-ability challenge on SCS, and our challenge is to use metal.
I used some foil tape stuck to card stock. I colored the foil with alcohol inks and then ran the sheet through my cuttlebug with muscial flourish embossing folder. I decided to put the metal behind a frame, so I used my mini cabinet card die (Tim Holtz/Sizzix) to cut a window in a piece of navy card stock. Then I layered it on white and my pacific point card base.
I have a new stamp set, secret garden (SU), that I just got this week, so I used that for the flowers and leaves (which are petals from the same flower stamp). I think the flower is a clematis, but I colored them red with inktense colored pencils and a water brush. Then I cut them all out. Looking at the flowers all together, they look more like poinsettias - not exactly what I had intended. I may have to use this for a Christmas card.
Since there is a seam in the center where the foil tape is, I chose a couple of feather die cuts (Quickutz) to camouflage that. Kind of a funky combination with the flowers. I added lines on the feathers with a black marker and sponged on some turquoise ink.
As a final decoration, I added some faux stitching with a white gel pen.
Thanks so much for stopping in today.
