Now on to the next Challenge and it's a cracker!
Try Something New
This could be a new technique or a completely new craft. Looking forward to seeing what you're all trying this week. I gave Metal Magic a go and this was the result:-
I'll be honest and say that Debbie Moore does make it look incredibly easy on the TV. It wasn't too hard but I did have a couple of goes before I was happy. Top tip - die cut before using Metal Magic!
This is actually my first commissioned card. My Mam asked me to make a card for my cousin's 21 birthday at the beginning of next month. I know that she likes turquoise so I thought I would make that the focus of the card. It was a stroke of luck really that I had some brown and turquoise Metal Magic powder to match.
I die cut the shape using Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three and then covered entirely with Perfect Medium clear ink. Once I had poured the Metal Magic over the shape, I carefully tipped the excess back into the pot. It is important not to tap as the powder will simply fall off.
Using my heat tool, I heated from the back and watched as the magic happened! I did this same process a second time and then quickly stamped the numbers before it hardened. The background paper is from Debbi Moore's Glitter and Glitz Paris Glamour CD-ROM. I love Debbi Moore's ranges - very glitzy and so elegant. I've got lots of ideas for cards, I just need a few more days in the week! I cut the paper into three using my Tonic guillotine and attached with foam tape.
