I recently joined a share for metal sheets by my friend Sencie (her blog is amazing, by the way ---> Serving the King). I was too intrigued to pass this up. I have to admit that I've used tin before in my stamping... heavy duty foil, double thick... and it still ripped. I thought I'd try these metal sheets to see how they work.
I'm really glad I did. The card came together so quickly!!!
Here it is:
The metal layer was embossed with the textile Cuttlebug folder. To give the silver tin a "less shiny" appearance, I used Ranger alcohol inks (Currant, Butterscotch and Meadow). Once this was dry (a few minutes to loose the tacky feeling), I dabbed Wheat VersaMagic ink over to highlight the design.
The stamped image is from the Kitchen Sink Stamps (3-Step Holly and Mistletoe). I added a bit of Fruitcake designer paper, ribbon loops and a couple of brads.
Simple! And yet, I think it looks pretty kicked up, don't you?!?!
Thanks for stopping by,
