Burnished Metal


It's time again for another Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge.  This week we are asking you to show us Some Metal.  Oh my, wait until you see what my amazing team mates have created this week!

After last week's marathon session to create my shoebox, I opted for something simpler this week.  I embossed a mocha sheet of 10 Seconds Studio metal using the Big Daddy Baroque Metal Mold and a paper stump blending tool.  Then I sanded off the high points a burnishing block.  The simple flower was made with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die and the stamp on the tag is from the Crafty Secrets Sweet Kids set.


Again this week, our ever so generous sponsor is offering a $50 shopping spree to the lucky random winner.  That's one fabulous prize!  So get going and show us some metal!  You can pick up loads of inspiration at Simon Says Stamp and Show.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
