Over at The Outlawz Twist Thursday challenge is ANYTHING GOES and the TWIST for this week is ANYTHING GOES, so stop by and enter you card we would love to see it. I wanted to do something really different and I had one of these metal containers around for awhile. I got out my Alcohol inks by Tim Holtz’s. The colors I used are butterscotch, terra cotta and stream. Also the blending solution. Our sponsor for the month of July is Anne’s digital images.
I did take pictures from all sides so you can see how it turned out. After I added the colors and that depends on you how dark you want it to be or how light. Like for the top I added the butterscotch on one on the felt pads but remember (if you do not change your pads you will make mud) to change your pad it you are changing colors like I did with the stream color. I added some of the blending solution to another pad and if your color is too dark you can whip some off.
Now for stamping on the metal, I put some blending solution in a paper towel (pretty wet) put the stamp in the solution and stamped on top of the desired area.
When you use 2 colors when they meet it can be a little messy so I added some ribbon around the metal container. I ran my tap on top of the tap and then applied it to the metal. You can use anything for the front. I punched out 2 flowers and punched out a small hole in both so I could add the ribbon to them. Added speckles glitter glue colors gold and magenta.
Tried some ribbons to the top handle. I took 2 pictures of the top so you can see how I added the different colors to the top area. That was the (very lightly) terra cotta and stream.
Believe it or not this is not a mess thing to do and it is pretty fast. All the stuff dry's real fast. It give a nice polish stone look and the solutions are all formulated to lighten and blend. Any questions just let me know. So if you never tried this it is fun and easy. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
