Add some metal at Try it on Tuesday

Hello Everyone. Thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts to see what the new TIOT has in store for you. Lots of inspiration from the design team but I am sure you will have wonderful ideas of your own and surprise us with how you add metal to your challenge project. You can make anything you like so long as we can see the metal that you added to it.



I made a plaque. It started out life a piece from a cardboard  box that I covered with a canvas paper and edged with Distressed Ink. Then I covered another piece of the card with Aluminium tape and ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Tim Holtz clock, embossing folder. To this I added various alcohol inks and black  polish to finish it off.

Next came the Love which Vic cut out carefully for me as I am not good at cutting out carefully. This was on a piece of thinner card and I added texture with embossing powder and various paints. The flowers are some more of the silk ones I took apart and remade in different styles. A few brads to hold it together and a bit of ribbon and that it's finished.

Can't wait to see what you make

Love Chrissie xx
