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.
