Metal Art....

Afternoon girls, are we all doing ok...just a quickie from me, I was having a play around to see if I could get the look of this metal art stuff thats doing the rounds.....without all the expensive tape etc; you have to buy....I just put some chipboard letters on a piece of cardstock, some scrim and covered  in glue then put some metallic looking tissue paper from stash....brushed it all down nice and tight, when dry I rubbed a embossing ink pad over it, sprinkled with powder and heated it up, while still hot I put a screw.... head down, into it, to leave it looking like a screw was actually there..........

splurged some viva decor around to, I think it looks ok to be honest and Lucas loves it on his door......what do you think, I know it's not as fab as the real thing, but this cost me nothing...lol.....


It does look metal like...do you think...lol.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for being here and I would LOVE to know what you really think...Hugs Janette...xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Janette

That looks great, I would never have known it was not metal if you had not told us how you did it, of course he likes it, you made it.
Thanks for your lovely comment, now to make you feel sick, I have not seen a cloud in the sky since we arrived, very windy thought at times and hot yes hot, something I have not had in the uk this summer.
I did not feel well yesterday, but I am ok today.
You take care
Hugs Margaret
