Today I have a fun and easy embellishment idea that will work for virtually any theme you might come across... Die-cut, embossed & inked metal!
This technique works best with a larger die-cutting system ~ Zip-E-Mate, Sizzix, Big Shot, etc. It doesn't work well with Cuttlebugs or QK type die cutters ~ you could very easily break these cutters if the metal is too thick.
Cut the metal...
Emboss using a stylus, embossing tool, ball point pen, etc. Squiggles, edge lines, dots, waves, etc are all great additions to the metal!
And they are ready for use :)
Since I used Streuters GlueFoil all I had to do was iron the flowers onto my canvas and add gemstone centers. (the stamped girl is from 100 Proof Press)
See, told ya it was easy!!
Now, just think of all the die-cuts available on the market...
the possibilities are wide open for creativity!
