Not a big hair band, although I’ve been known to bang heads with the best of them, ahem. This time it’s a challenge!
Silver, gold, copper or bronze, whichever metal you pick, just make it take center stage on your card or creation! FLLCOCT11. Deadline is October 14th at 5 PM Eastern.
I pulled out my Figs and Pomegranate set and stamped the large pomegranate image on Flourishes classic white card stock and colored it with a base of Copics and blended with Prismacolor pencils on top. After cutting the image with my Spellbinders Standard Circles large die I sponged it with Wheat Ink from a Versa Magic dew drop.
I used my new Picot Edge Circle die from Spellbinders for the mat. The paper is a copper metallic card stock that I purchased from my long lost local stamp shop several years ago. I was so happy to have this as it was a perfect match for my ribbon slider. I am not sure who makes the foiled card stock but it was a 12x12 sheet. The strip on the left was a mat piece of cardstock that I sprayed with Chestnut Brown Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels then embossed with a CB folder. The leaves from the Falling Leaves set were stamped on white card stock and sprayed with both Chestnut Brown and Moss Green Glimmer mist before cutting them out. Below you can see the shimmer on the leaves and cardstock, as well as the copper picot edge circle mat. The pomegranates were pained over with Garnet Twinkling H2O paint. They look so pretty!
I stamped the sentiment on some twill and added some copper adhesive nail heads. I curled some different colors of wild wire and used them as accents.
It’s hard to get the metallic accents to come through in photo’s but in real life it’s sparkly!
