My first all metal project

I made this altered "C" for my swap partner Cindy. I decided to try doing something mostly/all metal.
The trickier part of this was getting the metals to attatch and I finally had success doing that
with Glossy accents. I cut the embellies with my big kick from cut aluminum cans and various dies including the TH tattered florals die, a on the edge distressed doily die. and my smaller bird cage die (TH) I also used a flourish I got from
Kaui Melody in another swap and altered the flower part a little. I have found that the adirondak salmon color alcohol ink makes the aluminum look coppery and I like the effect I get. I then used some flousihes
(also attatched with glossy accents) and copper stckles. I really like the look of this an my partner also said she loved it, hope you will too. Thanks for stopping by, Kathy

Wedding Bells are Ringing

Hello Blogger Friends,
I just finished a wedding box for my daughters wedding this July and so I decided that today is
the day to share what I have been doing so far for this weddding. I have made centerpiece table
numbers for the reception as well as a special one for the head table and for the families tables as
well. I also made some lollipops in wedding colors and attatched them to flip flops for the attendants
to wear at the reception. I still have a fewmore flip flops to make and so I haven't taken pics of those.
Maybe I will when I finish the last ones, we'll see.
Okay so on to the wedding box. I bought the base box at HL and then began my altering. I found this awesome trim at HL in their upholstery dept. I love the shabby look of it and it also has glass prisms
that are hard to see in the pics. Then I used some love doves, prima flower, curly edged pink roses, and little
blue roses as well. I added a bead spray and some glittery netting ( websters pages) and an organza bow. I am really happy with the way this turned out. Hope you like it too.
