I'm so excited to say that I'm back on the team and will be creating with their wonderful shapes again monthly! The new team includes some "regulars" (some who have been there since the beginning) and some fresh faces! Here's the list
Here's how it came out - I ended up using Brass, Aluminum and Copper with a different design on each (I used 5mil metal which was a great thickness but I also think 3mil would work just fine!).
Getting a good picture of them was a challenge, shiny is hard to photograph, but hopefully you can get the idea. For the 2 smaller leave I embossed the metal using a Cuttlebug (one with an embossing folder and the other with an embossing plate). For the large, copper one I first traced the shape on the copper and then punched it using a hammer and nail. Once I had my design I cut it out and adhered it to the shape which I had painted.
This was really a fun project, I'd like to try working with the metal again - maybe with proper punching tools! :)
Thanks so much for visiting today - have a great day!
