Shabby Metal

Hi Everyone

Today is the turn of my WOW embossing powders and making Faux Metal and shabby flowers


I have used Stampotique 'Angel' and Personal Impressions 'Urban Angel' flower and Tim Holtz 'The collection 002 numbers stamp.

I firstly triple embossed a tag with WOW embossing Powder in Silver, Brass, Pepper, Nutmeg and Stampendous 'aged ivory'.  While hot I then stamped into the melted embossing powder the Tim Holtz stamp - firstly inking it up with Archival 'jet black'

I stamped 'angel' and coloured her in with promarkers and cut her out.  

I then triple embossed a piece of cardstock with the above colours and again inked up the 'urban flower' and pressed this into the melted powder and cut the flowers out.  I glued a gem for the middle and added ribbons to the top of the tag.

I am entering this tag into the following challenges:


  1. I have always reserved the word "stunning" for something that makes me go WOW! when I first look at it, Sue, and this tag is absolutely STUNNING! Truly!

  2. really cool, love those flowers and that stamp is awesome, one of my favorites!!
