Monochrome Silver

Welcome

I am currently visiting (sick) family - Grandma to the rescue, as we do!

This was made recently for a wedding anniversary, for a couple who are pretty 'no fuss' people


The base stamp is from Hero Arts - Fine Woven Fabric - a stamp that I have had 'forever' and never used to its potential. I embossed it using detail silver embossing powder.


Washi tape was layered over that, before the next details were added.

The two small hearts were stamped so they overlapped, embossed, fussy cut, and mounted on foam dots.

The sentiment was embossed, the tag trimmed and the corners rounded, then the edges were also embossed, again mounted on foam dots.


This image shows the wonderful sheen of the silver embossing.


Thank you for visiting - any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated
May your day be blessed

Beautifully done Maxine! I will bet it is even better in person. The silver show here but in person it will just shine.
