Aluminium Foil, Black Kaisercraft Paint, Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink, Walnut Embossing Powder, Adironack Ink – Hazelnut and Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mists. Embossing Plates.
Ok so i should have taken proper step photographs along the way but kinda stumbled across this finish and I just wanted to show you how easy it is and what you can do with some ordinary aluminium foil.
You may remember the set of drawers i made for the CHA show. Well the black drawers on this unit were a piece of Ten Second Studio Metal embossed through my cuttlebug. This is isn’t the easiest product to come across here in Geelong so today i thought about having a play and making some of my own.
- Tear off a piece of aluminium foil and seriously i only used a glue stick to adhere it to a thin piece of chipboard.
- Place inside an embossing folder and run through a cuttlebug,big shot etc etc. and you will get something that looks like this (Thanks Ellie, Miss 11, has just decided that she is going to make one of her own now).
- I then really just played with the above products, wiping ink over the embossed foil, dripping adironack Ink and sprinkling embossing powder. I am really enjoying just playing and making a little messes at the moment. In between dry with a heatgun to speed up the processon. If i didn’t quite like the effect i would just add a little more.
- Once happy with the colours, i then grabbed my sanding block and gave it a gentle sand over the top to highlight the embossed design.
- Now to cut it to size as i think this will make a great cover for one of the storage drawers and will match the Timeless Collection beautifully. I can imagine it in the storage unit instead of the black ones.Hmmmmm noice.
And here is the one my little Ellie (Miss 11) just finished– her favourite colour is blue – i guess i won’t be seeing my cuttlebug for the rest of the night now – she has herself firmly planted in my place with all the inks in front of her – so there you go is she can do it – SO CAN YOU !!!!
