Dazzling Diva Challenge #70

April 8, 2015 at 2:22 pm 6 comments


Hi! Hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter. The challenge over at Add A Little Dazzle is this mood board. I was inspired by the navy old sign in the top left  

It’s using a set by Waltzingmouse Stamps called Old Country Roses  and I’ve used Black Diamond metal 


I simply scrunched up a piece of metal, flattened it out and put it through my diecutting machine to flatten in further.

Then add some double sided tape to the back- stick it down on the card base at an angle and emboss around the edges with an embossing tool to create the illusion of a frame. 

Then I simply sanded lightly and where the metal has been scrunched it sands away nicely.  


Do join in with the challenge- it’s about how the mood board inspires you. You’ve a week to join in..post your makes in the linky here


I’ll be back tomorrow with my make for Make The Day Special stamp store.


Ps- amazingly we’ve still got eggs left in the house. I’ve not touched any of mine which is more of a comment on how busy I’ve been rather than my non existent will power!

    Fantastic metal scrunching Keren, looks great after the sanding too. Good to know you still have some chocolate left, we decided to share one egg this year and keep the calories down lol.

    Hope you are well 🙂 xxx
