I wanted to try a 'new to me' technique using ink refills on mirri card - as I have tons of it which I don't use - but don't have many ink refills as I usually just buy new pads when they dry out!
When I went to find the refills I possess 2 were empty and the other had dried up! So it was back to a tried and trusted technique using a thin flexible metal bought when I was doing a lot of mixed media and now a little neglected.
I took my piece of copper metal and dry embossed with a 'Cogs' folder then used my clear embossing pad on it. Gold, Silver and Copper embossing powders sprinkled on top. I re did this a couple of times until I got the effect I wanted.
Once dry I swiped a Stazon Ink pad across the top.
I fiddled about with layouts and frames for a while but in the end I chopped up my metal piece into 2 strips!
Simply matted onto black card before placing on the card base and stamped the sentiment.
To be honest I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed messing about with metal - so whilst I had the metal pack out I embossed a couple more pieces and have made my hands very very messy using alco ink on them without gloves.....😒😒
