Hi, everyone!! Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers is to find inspiration from the World Market......I fell in love with this intricate table lamp......too bad it doesn't match my house, or I would have ordered it!! :) It reminded me of some of the intricate die sets by Our Daily Bread designs, the ODBD Custom Angel Wings Die Set and ODBD Custom Ornate Hearts Die Set. I dug into my stash and found both copper and bronze metallic cardstock and decided to combine the two. The angel wings were cut from both colors, then the copper cut pieces were embedded into the bronze wings. To do this, the copper wings were removed first from the die, then I used wide Scor-tape across the back of the die to lift the cut pieces all at once, then laid the the bronze wings over the cut pieces and trimmed the excess tape from the edges. The sentiment from "Holy Angels" was embossed in copper on the shimmery white paper, plus copper embossing powder was sprinkled randomly and heated from the underside so that it would "cure" without being blown off by the heat gun. A glitter pen was used to highlight the embossed areas of all of the die cut pieces, including the polka dots on the tiny heart and the raised area on the key (from the Angel Wings Die Set).
Since metallics are difficult to photograph, I have added an extra view.
Thanks for visting today! Have a blessed weekend!!
