Damask Red Posy - Fun with a Few Challenges

My friend Sue came over yesterday and we had a fun creative day working on some upcoming projects.  We put them aside for a bit and challenged each other to use the Get Sketchy #62 Sketch along with our friend Mona's new CR84FN1 Color Challenge.  I also incorporated some Damask, for the Diggin' on Damask challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Here's the sketch and Mona's wonderful photo inspiration










And here's what I created using Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Die and Perfect Petals Die



The Posy and leaves are cut from Ten Second Studios Metal that I embossed with the Texture Fades Damask Folder.  The Posy was cut from Barn Red Metal, The Petals from Silver Metal that I stained Green with Alcohol Ink.  I sanded the embossed area lightly to expose the backside of the metal. I curled the Posy flower and stacked the two smaller flowers onto of the larger one using a Pop Up Glue Dot, then added a Prima Flower Center.  The beautiful papers are Basic Grey and Webster's Pages.

Card Stock - White, World Win Autumn Red, Black

Wow ... this is absolutely stunning. I'd love to have a pin for the lapel of my coat that looked like that ... gorgeous.

Awesome!~

Lisa this is so awesome. It looks like you welded metal or something. It is very "Give Me a Big Show" at MOMA--type art!

I love the colors. And, talk about texture...that is wonderful. I love Damask. I am trying to find a stamp with just one part of the Damask showing...not a border. Any idea? I bet you had so much fun with Sue!

Have a blessed day!
He IS Able,

Just taking a stroll through your blog, love your creations...especially this flower made with metal, it's gorgeous! Do you think this technique would work with metal from a soda can?
