Embossed Metal

Distressed Silver & Blue Tree Earrings & Necklace
I stumbled upon a new technique this week & I'm excited about the possibilities! I'd seen a similar look on etsy some months back and was wondering how it was done. Then, while shopping for crafts to occupy my kids, I saw new Vintaj Sizzix Embosslits & put 2 & 2 together.

I already had tons of stamping blanks & used those with the embosslits in my Big Shot to make earrings and pendants. Then, I painted with acrylics, distressed and sealed them with an acrylic spray.

Downton Abbey Scrabble Tile Pendants

I've been pretty busy (4 kids, chairing a gala, kitchen remodel, yada, yada) so haven't done too much new lately but like many of you, I caught the Downton Abbey bug and so created these new designs featuring the Dowager Countess at her best and other Downton Abbey-inspired sayings. Usually, I buy my graphic designs but this time, I had to create these myself because I couldn't find anything like them (well, maybe I borrowed a few of the sayings :) ).
