For our September challenge over at Country View Challenges - Metal - I have chosen the silver from the metals. And I created a card with silver moon, silver stars and silver spatters.
For this card I mostly used Tim's product but for the background I took many shades of blue acrylic paints and I coloured the 300g watercolour paper with them using brush and sponge as well.
I cut out the silver from chipboard and the stars from the 300g paper. I painted these elements silver (both sides).
When they were dry I heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
The background paper was also spritzed with the Ranger Distress Spray Stain (Brushed Pewter).
First I heat embossed the text directly onto the card but like this it wasn't highlighted enough so I cut out a black rectangle and I made the silver text again.
