WOW Embossing Powders Metal Challenge

The April challenge over at WOW is Metal, I love their powders, I just hope I'm not too late to enter.
I started with an old wooden picture frame which was .50p from a charity shop.
 Gave it a good clean and lightly sanded it back. I then embossed a sheet of craft metal though the E-bosser and painted over it with Martha Stewart acrylic paint, wiping some of it off with a baby wipe before it dried completely.
 I then cut the metal into strips to fit the frame, and attached them with strong red tape. I left the corners square on this one, due to the pattern.
I then finished off the frame by adding a layer of Versamark all over it and covering with Wow Neutral Ultra Shimmer powder, before carefully heat embossing it.
Not bad for .50p and a little TLC.
Better get some jobs done now ;)

Very nice. Love your hallmark gentle blue colouring. I can remember us doing something very similar with Paddy in Manchester a few years ago. It was great fun wasn't it?
