I just LOVE this technique! Acrylic paints on embossed metal, sanded, inked and embossed with clear powder. When I first saw it I wasn't so sure, but I did a test piece and was just so impressed with how it turned out. Be sure to go HERE to see Tim's piece and the instructions.
I only had copper craft metal, but when I started to sand it the copper also came off in places and I got down to the silver. I used Cranberry and Wild Plum Dabbers and my favourite embossing folder which has a bit of a Christmassy feel (perhaps!).
Not having any metal embellishments and not wishing to make another wreath out of small leaves, I decided to go with a lovely white crown which I backed with some text paper and embellished with some pearls inked with Cranberry Alcohol Ink (technique from tag 1).
I've put the photographs here of the pieces as they developed as you really would not think that when you start the process it will come out so well. I shall certainly be doing this one again.
