Dazzling Diva Challenge #62

February 11, 2015 at 2:12 pm 10 comments

Hi! This week’s challenge is a colour challenge. We’ve all used Dark Chocolate and Scarlet Red metals

IMG_7175 the picture is very cute and I know it might be hard to see on the picture, but the dark chocolate ( apart from the little heart) is actually pleated on the right hand side of the card-this metal pleats so easily!

IMG_7170 I decided to use some Lawn Fawn dies and wanted to utilise two fonts and treat each font as a shaker element but with different shaker contents! After I cut out the sentiment, I carefully pushed some Scarlet red metal through the heart aperture and rubbed until the heart has dimension and stands a little proud of the cardstock aperture.
If you’re worried about the dimension being squished in transit, you can add in some embossing paste to fill it in.
Wonder if embossing paste would do wonders for my wrinkles too! πŸ˜‰
The diecut section is backed with acetate, each area surrounded with foam pads/strips, the shaker element added and then encapsulated with some card on the reverse. Despite it looking gold, the stars and micro beads are actually silver.
Micro beads!! Remember them?!! I’ve a little stash from when we were all using them a few years ago!
If you’d like to join in- pop here, leave your photo of any project inspired by the photo – and you don’t need to use metal either!
Enjoy joining in!!

    Now this truly is dazzling…and, oh so, clever. LOVE the separate shakers and that nifty pleated ruffle (?) on the right. If you find out the embossing paste works well as a filler for wrinkles, post it!
