I can't stop making all these little metal embellishments!! The tutorial can be found here, and below are a couple more ideas of how to make them.
This time a used my stamps to stamp a design and then go over it with fabric paint.
Here are the stamps I chose, 2 rubber ones, and 2 foam ones.
Traced over in fabric paint!
Covered in tape and embossed. :)
Cute little additions to any project!
Speaking of project, I'm trying to follow along and make a card a week with OCC Sketch Challenge.
So trying to use my little metal embellishments, I came up with this:
I didn't like the little snowflake punches.
Also note that the ribbon bits on the sides were added because I put clear nail polish on the sides of the green ribbon so that it wouldn't fray, but of course that left dark marks... so I covered it with cute stapled on ribbon bits! :)
Also, I have 2 ink pads that no matter what I stamp them on the NEVER seem to dry. Actually my best friend gave them to me because she was super frustrated with them for this reason. Being inventive I took them and figured I could work something out.
I did. The word "JOY" is stamped and then I traced over it with Diamond Glaze which nicely seals in the ink. Success!! (don't have diamond glaze/can't find it, I think Mod Podge makes a very similar product - Dimensional Magic. Actually there's a similar project done over at Fireflies and Jellybeans AND they're doing a Dimensional Magic Giveaway too - Tomorrow's the last day to enter! I actually did this before I saw the Fireflies and Jellybeans card, great minds think alike I guess!!)
So next I decided to try to "fix" my card by adding more of my little metal looking embellishments.
Now it just felt like I threw tin foil on it. I really hated this idea!
So then I decided that I liked the snowflakes, but not the over kill tin foil look.
I did the same thing with the snowflakes as I did with the word JOY!
Ah. That's better!
Still not 100% happy with it. But its better. lol I'd love to hear what you think!
