Metal Madeleine

Hello Folks!

Sorry It seems like ages since I've blogged, I have had to catch up with the Christmas prep.  Got most of it sorted now, so can relax a bit!

This is the first of my DT samples for this month.  It is done with one of the fab new Clarity stencils - Madeleine
I have always liked the stamp, so was pleased to get the stencil too.

This card is done by embossing the stencil on aluminium foil (a stronger metal may have been better, but I didn't have any!!)  The first time I tried, the foil kept cracking, so I stuck it onto card first, then embossed and that worked better.  Once it was all embossed, I aged it by using black acrylic paint wipe on - wipe off and it stays in the cracks.

Hope you like it!  Janet xx
