Milla and faux metal

Just had to share these with you. Milla and I spent a fab few hours in the cabin yesterday and she wanted to make a desk calender as "classed" by Jenny over at Stamping Moments (Autumn Days).

The faux metal is just tin foil glued onto a piece of card and then run through the cuttlebug. Then painted with black acrylic paint which was rubbed off until the bright silver foil went all grubby. Stazon inks in various colours were then rubbed on. The two pieces were layered onto the "easel" part of the desk calender. She was very pleased with herself. she did find it difficult cos the rubber gloves were a bit big for her !!!!

I just love this technique. It is a technique that Linda and I did with Sue Roddis at the Craft Barn. Love that lady!

Well best get on with me knitting!

Love Burnice x
