I thought I would take the opportunity to share a card that I've made for my God Daughter which I've used Filigree metal on.
I always like to make all the elements I need before putting a project together. I've used a Crafty Individual stamp and started by stamping onto some white card and cutting out the different parts. I then painted the images using Distress Markers.
I then used Distress Stains on white card and spritzed it with water so all of the colours ran into each other.
When it was dry I used the Honeycomb Texture Fade and then cut it out using the Tim Holtz Cameo Frame. I've blended some Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink around the edge.
I did the same again with a smaller piece of Filigree Metal as my intention is to layer one piece on top of the other.
For this layer I've used watercolour paper and stencilled the flowers around the edge using some more acrylic paint.
To finish off the card I've dyed some seam binding using Distress Stains amd layered everything up.
I think the Filigree Metal looks great layered, the top layer looks almost rusted (I must remember this!).
Here's another project where I've hidden part of the Filigree metal to create a border.
Remember that all of the Filigree Metal will have 15% off for the next week so it's the ideal time to stock up.
