Altered Metal

It's blog waltz time!



I'm experimenting with Glimmer mist again and I saw the neatest idea on the Tattered Angels blog and thought I'd give it a try. This is the result:



I embossed a sheet of metal using a sizzix folder and sprayed it with a pink glimmer mist. Once it was dry, I painted it with Glimmer Glaze and let it dry.  I think it looks great. I love the colors.  I know I'll be experimenting more with metal and Glimmer products.

To fit in with the theme of the blog waltz at Waltzingmouse Stamps, I had to use buttons, and you can see the tiny button brads that I've added to the image.  I also used the Rescue Remedies stamp set that is available here

Please leave a comment. I love to hear from those who stop by. Don't forget to enter my blog candy here.  Thanks for waltzing by.
