Hi, thanks for coming back. I hope you're day is going well! I am so excited to share my project with you today. This literally took me weeks to finish - mostly because it was a figure it out as I go kind of project. I'd do some stuff... not like it... try again. So I literally was down to the wire getting my post in. But the results - I am way happy with.
I am featuring the A2 Stationary Box by Samantha Walker and a 3D Flower by Jamie Cripps. I learned the faux metal technique by watching this You Tube video.
What do you think? Cool, right?! I love this box. My son touched it and he said that he expected it to be sturdier than what it is.... like metal, Mom. Yay! It fooled him. I cut the pieces out of black card stock, including all layering pieces. I then used foil tape (hardware store for duct work) and covered the layering pieces. Embossed them and then painted with black acrylic paint.
For the flower, I cut it out of black card stock and then adhered regular kitchen aluminum foil onto the petals, embossed and then painted. For the center pistols, I rubbed metallic paste on them. With the foil on the petals, they were pretty easy to shape and hot glue together.
Then I tucked in a couple of different ribbons and embellished with a key and metal doo-dads. I think their sort of like eyelets.
Here's a side view. I did use 3 different embossing folders create add lots of texture and dimension.
I hope that I have inspired you and I thank you for stopping by.
