This week the challenge is to use Tim's Pumpkin challenge. You can see it here:
I decided to create a hexagon box and then cover it with The Ranger silver metal which has a sticky back and so easy to use in this way.
First I cut out a card template for the box. Then I chose an embossing folder to run the metal through to create texture. I love this random circle folder. I then positioned the card over the metal and drew around the template. When cut out it was so easy to apply with the sticky background. I did cut it out slightly larger and then trimmed back.
I really liked the plain silver look and did not want to colour the box. I even decided not to run a dark stazon ink over the high points to add depth. I just liked it plain simple so the flower would stand out even more.
The flowers were punched out of metal sheet, run through a flowery embossing folder and then coloured with Alcohol Inks as Tim's video. I really like the effect of the coloured flower against the silver box. The metal is lovely to shape too, to create dimension. Enjoyed this make.
It reminded me of a water lily floating on a pond and the circle embossing folder looks like rings in water after a pebble is thrown in.
