...you know I said that I was going to faff with some Ten Seconds Studio metal yesterday afternoon, whilst being incredibly quiet so as not to wake Grim?? Well, this morning I have finished off one of the pieces of metal I had "moulded"... adding on some Studio 490 stamps, Grungepaper, Grungeboard and some Idea-ology...
The mould I used is actually the reverse sideo of a Kabuka Mold which is all squares but I have just chosen random ones to mould so I got a patchy effect. The metal is Plum and I have added black paint to age it and then some Pool Alcohol Ink to lighten it up a bit.
The flowers are made with 490 stamps... they look fab with metal don't they? And the heart??? Another 490 stamp... as well as the ART in the Idea-ology Book Plate... that had the alcohol ink treatment too :O)) The strip up the centre of the base was made with some gold metal and a couple of ball and cup tools, making faux rivets...And finally, the centre of the flower is a little Maya Road Bingo counter... I know, they are soooo sweet aren't they?
Thanks for looking... I am off to creep about on tippytoes again cos Grim is just off to bed... Alfie did indeedily turn into a Guard Cat last night... I was stoooopid enough to sit and watch a film on BBC1 that was a bit of a thriller... about a woman (Susan Sarandon) who has some stranger creeping about her house...mmm, not a good film to watch when you are alone... so Alfie the Guard Cat came and sat with me...on my feet actually, kept them toasty and helped me to eat a packet of Cheesy Wotsits...they are his fave crisps BTW, but he does look funny when a Wotsit sticks to his fangs...anyway...when Grim got home this morning, apparently GuardCat was sitting at the top of the stairs... keeping...erm...guard... of his Mummy ROFL TTFN... have a great day!
PS... am gonna watch Twilight tonight... far nicer to watch a film about deranged vampires and werewolves...surely??? LMAO
**EDIT** ... later....
