House of Cards: Metallic


Hi, all!  Time for another monthly challenge at House of Cards!  This month, we've got a word cue for you--"Metallics"!  Let it inspired you however you choose. :)


I decided to try my hand at Faux Patina.  You can take a peek at my tutorial video on it HERE or at the House of Cards challenge blog.  I made a faux patina-ed base for the rest of my fun metallic embellishments.  Check it out...


I added some beautiful metallic flowers, made by my friend, Cohenna, as well as some leaves, a half doily, a punched trim, and metallic ribbons and elastic cording to the top of the card.


The bottom of the card was where I put the sentiment.  This sweet one is from the Flower of the Month: Poppies stamp set from Inspired By Stamping!  And take a closer look at the effect of the patina technique, too.



I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the way this turned out!  I adore this fun technique, and it is SO easy, so make sure you check out my tutorial video!  I also cannot wait to hear what you think of my creation, so please do leave a comment below!


Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking a peek at my creation. :)  I hope you come and join our current challenge at House of Cards--I always LOVE seeing what you come up with!  Don't forget to take a peek at the amazing DT work, too!  You will be INSPIRED.  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
