Catch up....

Hi everyone, another quick post from me. I've finally finished my piece from Sue Carrington's inspiring Metal Art workshop last month. Slow but steady! I loved the original colour combination but decided to go a different colour way with the alcohol inks and then came unstuck trying to marry up the background. The finished piece is much less vibrant than the original but as I love shades of brown I'm more than happy with the result!






Thanks so much for stopping by and happy crafting!

  12. Oh my goodness I'm in love with this! I love the shades of brown with those gorgeous rich metallics and this is so very beautiful. The flower has really blown me away - it looks like real metal but I'm guessing you used one of your amazing techniques on it - it's stunning!
