Gingersnap Creations Color Challenge - Copper, Ginger or Rust
This is my hanging piece for the color challenge at Gingersnap Creations. The color to use was copper, ginger, or rust so I chose to use a piece of copper flashing as my base. I've been seeing some cool metal pieces posted by Hels Sheridan and thought I'd show one. The main image is a photostamp from The Stampsmith - I love using them on metal with StazOn - I think it gives a real old fashioned daguerreotype look. I used a Stampers Anonymous Studio 490 stamp to create a border around it (just acquired the scalloped stitching stamp - it's a great one!) and added some embossing with a stylus and a ball and cup tool. That piece is layered onto a cuttlebug embossed copper piece aged with black paint. Lastly, I added some metal bits altered with copper paint to the lower corner.
