We're Faking It....

The fabulous Maria is our hostess this week over at Stampotique and she has asked that we use faux metal in our creations this week. 

'' Metals are an amazing source for jewelry and other fine crafts. But,  how many of you like to use metals on handmade creations? I challenge you to create a faux-metal creation,  using Stampotique stamps. It can be anything, from jewelery to embellishments! Make it look real!''
 So here's mine

I started by melting some UTEEs in silver and gold on my craft mat and stamping Jo's Big Bee while it was still molten. When it was cool I just lifted it off the mat - I lurve the big drippy bit at the top.

I melted the same UTEE's on some card and stamped Medium Bee onto this then cut out.
Journey Collage has been stamped with distress inks in green and blue, and the centre has been inked over in yellow. This has been outlined with German Scrap which has been in my stash for years. 
I showed my card to Chris and all he said was 'oh it reminds me of Morrisons' Not the reaction I wanted lol (think Walmart in USA) The trouble was I could see what he meant, and now it is all that I see :-)
Permission please to slap my son lol.
So please fake it with us this week and link up to be in with the chance to win a $30 gift certificate.
Thanks very much for looking and enjoy your day x
