Live... in Metal


Not sure how the colors are on your screen... they are off on mine... the flowers and base card are all purple not the bluish they are looking to me.  The gears background and "Live" are both done with Ten Seconds Studio metal and molds and a wheel for the edging on Live... rock star black metal for the gears and plum metal for "Live".  The green strip is Appletini metal cut with a Tim Holtz On The Edge die and embossed with the Dotmatrix Tim Holtz folder.  Flowers and large gears are grungepaper cut with Tim Holtz dies.  The gears were colored with Distress Ink black soot and dabbed with silver Paint Dabber.  The darker bottom petals of the rose are colored with DI dusty concord right on the grungepaper... the rest of the rose and other flowers were colored first with Adirondack pigment ink snow cap and then with dusty concord.  All flowers stamped with the Wendy Vecchi dot background image.  Black sticky back gems in the centers of the flowers.  The smallest flower is the same flower as the other one but I cut off about half of each petal.  White Enamel Accents for the dots around the cardstock base and on the grungepaper gears... Black Enamel Accents for the dots on the letters.

great card. That gears background looks like the clockwork embossing folder, so i was surprised when you described what it was and wasn't what I thought. BIG GRIN. Lots of little details here. Good idea to cut the petals down to make a smaller flower.
