An Embossed Metal Card

Have you tried Tattered Angels mists, glams and glazes on metal? I did and I love the effect. Here's the card I made for Tattered Angels.

I found a sheet of thin metal foil in my kitchen cabinet and ran this through my embossing machine with a Tim Holtz texture plate. I then painted it with Tattered Angels Tide Pool glimmer glam and Waterfall glaze and turned this embossed and painted metal into a greeting card. Don’t you love the shine of blue against the silver metal?

I used the new chalkboard mist in Alaskan Salmon on the chipboard scallop oval.

Gotta love all the textures and dimension going on in this card. And not a flower in sight. ;)
