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...Hu…
