I've been trying to get a bit more inky lately as my cute side seems to have taken over just a bit lol.. anyway, i had a little wooden letter cube that had a W inset that i would never of used, so i decided it would be a good little project to alter.
I dug out the W carefully with a small chisel, and painted all over with blue metallic paint.
As i haven't played with metal in a long time either i got a bit of my TSS metal, and while rummaging i found one of the mini embossing plates you get free with magazines, the one i found had a summer/seaside theme... and seeing as its nearly the end of our summer i thought it a perfect topic for my project! Keep the summer alive lol!
I cut a square of metal big enough to fit into the the little inlay on the cube, i then cut that into 4, and embossed each piece with a different summertime shape... as i didn't want them to look all the same, i coloured each piece using Kuretake alcohol inks, these are very striking and vibrant colours and i love um... if you like ranger inks you'll love these too, there a must!
I thought that the cube looked a bit bare and wanted to jazz it up a touch, so to finish i added some fun and funky grungepaper flowers, made using the flower power plate from artistic stamper and some distress inks. I held the flowers together with some fab screw top snaps just to give a quirky look.
Thanks for stopping by, there will be another project next week!
