Inspirational #138: Stamped Metal
Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, September 24th, at 11:59 PM U.S. Central time.
This is Drea hosting this week's Inspirational!
Our theme this week is Stamped Metal! Create some kind of metal on your stamping using inks, markers, colored pencils, mists, paints, or embossing powders. Be sure to let us know what metal or metals you've chosen, whether it's silver, pewter, iron, bronze, gold, or copper.
For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.
I made this card using gold, bronze, and iron, and embossed all of my stamping. The background was done using an old sewing pattern of mine, which I glued onto kraft cardstock. I cut up a real tape measure, as the colors were just right for this project. The sentiment, dressform, needle with thread, and the single buttons were stamped using the Sew Thoughtful set. The sewing machine, other buttons, and scissors were done with the Sew Thankful set. The black stitching along the bottom was done using Running Stitches. And finally, I used Reinforcers for the tag, which was made from muslin.
I hope you are inspired by my Inspirational this week and link up a newly created project to this post by the deadline! We look forward to seeing what you create!
