*fun*ky!

Hey y'all.  Here's a card that is a little funky, but fun too.  I used the "Tattered Florals" Tim Holtz Sizzix die.  I cut out the flower pieces with some printed vellum, and again with some heavy duty aluminum foil (yeah, like from the kitchen).  I actually cut it a third time with plain white card stock and adhered that to the foil pieces to give them some substance.  Then I dry-embossed and cut some foil leaves out of the same kitchen foil using my new Walnut Hollow metal embossing kit.  This kit was a semi-impulse buy at Hobby Lobby.  (My 40% off coupon was burning a hole in my pocket and I have been wanting to try this for a while anyway.)  I assembled the flower alternating the foil and vellum pieces and finished it with a shiny silver brad.  Then I stained the leaves with some alcohol inks, put it all together and added the stamped sentiment.  Like I said, FUNKY FUN!  Peace.
