Oh my.....OTT




Well I did warn you !!    I wanted some chain for another piece I am working on and found a horrible necklace ( well I thought it was horrible)  in a charity shop for £1, well I got left with this huge stone and a smaller one and couldn't throw it away......


I'm also playing with foil tape, the kind you buy from Wicks or B&Q   God knows what you are suppose to use it for in DIY...


Anyhoo.....I decided to marry the two together and made this metal effect bling Christmas card !!  The stones look very brown, but their not, it just the light....


The tape is sticky backed so you just cover a piece of card with it, run it through an embossing folder, paint it with black acrylic paint, then rub off as much as you like to get the pewter colour effect.  the flowers I just die cut, but didn't paint so they stayed shiny.

Well there never be another card like it............
