Simon Says Stamp and Show Some Metal

So here it is!


I started by embossing some brown metal using a Ten Seconds Studio mould.  Once finished, I rubbed alcohol ink gently over the top - this removes the colour from the metal and tints the raised areas with the colour of the alcohol ink. I tore the metal to the desired shape and decorated the outside edges with  wheel tool.

For the background, I used some corrugated cardboard, pulling off some of the top layer and spraying it with Glimmer Mists. I added the Tim Holtz tape and then attached the embellishments. The flower was made from Grungepaper with text glued over it and coloured with Distress Inks. The ticket was die-cut and then stamped and coloured.
