Metal Blooms

 Hi everyone, time for another challenge at Make My Monday. This week  our host is the lovely Fliss  and she would like to see Handmade Embellishments on your projects
 here's mine using creative metal to make the blooms :)

 Products
Red and Yellow card stock
Versafine Onyx Black.
Creative metal
Alcohol Inks, various colours, mainly red and yellow
Stazon: green and red
Distress ink: Wild honey
Autumn Leaves Doodle Bloom clear stamps
Inkadinkado: sentiment
Black marker pen 
 Sorry I haven't enough time to describe the the hows and what nots, but please don't hesitate to ask if there's anything you wish to know and I'll get back to you, probably on Tuesday :)


Close up of flower bud...  they were a pain to cut out ... nicely that is :)

I used one of the tools in my creative metal kit to embellish the card stock here and there.
This is a metal book cover I made quite some time ago at a work shop run by Sarah Anderson at the Cubby Hole...I've  not really done much  with the metal or the tools... since then...what a waste! so thought I'd see what I could come up with. I don't have many Stazon colours or many alcohol inks so found it hard to reproduce these fabulous colours but you can see where the inspiration for the card came from.
As always thank you for taking the time to visit I look forward to and appreciate your comments
 Have a lovely week see you over at MMM

Love it... I've not worked with metal but it looks fab.. I can imagine it being a bit tricky but worth the effort, Px

These metal flowers are a clever idea and thanks for sharing the lovely book cover which was your inspiration. Enjoy what is left of the weekend.

Wow! I love your metal flowers, Suzi - I couldn't decide what they were made of until I read your blog. What a fab idea and so striking.

I was only saying in a comment on another blog tonight that it's an absolute age since I used any of my metal work stuff (and I have plenty). Your card is fab Sue, really funky and modern. Love the colours and the clever embossing. Great work Sue
