Copper Metal Flowers....

Had fun this past week playing with Frantage and Lindy Magical Powders....
This is My Card....

I sprinkled Lindy Magical powders through a stencil and activated them with water.
I used Creme Brulee, Dark Chocolate Truffle and Sandra Dee Sepia.
The first two have the shimmer in them and if you are looking for a light, 
cream like colour then the Brulee is fabulous. 
The Sepia is a flat colour with no shine. 
The die cut flowers and leaf have been embossed with Frantage Aged Copper
embossing enamel to give a Faux Metal appearance.
Depending how long you heat them you can get a 
 molten effect or  bumps, more textural look.
I did both this time.

I finished off with stamping the sentiment in brown.
You can get a real super shine from the Frantage and the Lindy Powders.

The CAS Mix Up Challenge is on until the 24th so I shall be popping my card
into the challenge for fun....My choice is Stencil, die cutting and heat embossing.
I shall be popping my card into CAS on Friday Challenge, which is to make a CAS Thank You Card
Take It Make It Challenge - Anything goes and to include a stamp
Stamplorations - CAS without the optional colour twist.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

This is so beautiful I love the heat embossed flower and the bronze colour co-ordinates perfectly with the powders that you've used in the background. Another work of art Mac! x

WOW Mac, how gorgeous this is, I love that molten copper on the flower and the background stencil and colours are fabulous, Kate x

Oh my word - that copper flower looks just incredible - an extraordinarily beautiful focal point. And when you manage to tear your eyes away from it, you get that wonderful patchwork grid of magical colour blends. I do have some Creme Brulee somewhere - thank you for the nudge to get it out and have a play when I get back to the UK.

Such impact Mac, the embossed die cut is oozing with melted goodness. It's almost a shame to be a card as it would look fabulous framed. A really striking work of art, thank you as always for sharing. You are so fabulous.
Hugs for a super weekend Tracey xx

Wow, those Lindy's magical powders are just beautiful. I love the way you used the Frantage Aged Copper on your flowers. The look like metal. You did a great job!

Jo Manna said...

This neutral palette is so rich, the background blows my mind with all this granulation happening, I ADORE it! Not to say that your blooms compliment it perfectly. Interesting approach to this embossing powder and very well executed. A unique beauty my friend, xx

Linby said...

This is so beautiful, I love the effect you've achieved. Looks like fun too - think I might have to try something similar.

Mrs A. said...

Beautiful effect . I like that stencil too. I really should bebrave and use my embossing powders ore. Hugs Mrs A.

Craftychris said...

All I can say is Wow! xxx

Papercraft Boutique said...

Wow, gorgeous neutral Magical stenciled background, Mac! The colors and the visual texture are just stunning. The mix of the shimmer and flat Magicals must look more interesting IRL.
And I love the aged copper embossed flowers and leaf! I feel like reaching out my hand and actually touching the smooth part and the textural part. It's truly a feast for the eyes!

S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G! Your artistry and creativity is limitless. Gorgeous design. Fabulous dimensions and texture. Love it! xx

I was sure that I was commenting on this divine miracle, but I see that there is no comment, so I probably got stuck in the translator :(
I love every detail of this card. Every stain in the background, both glossy and dull, are wonderful, but your flower, with two different types of surface, is a real revelation.
You are so creative, that always leaves me with their mouth open in awe
Hugs,
BożenA
