Hip to be Square challenge entry - Hels Sheridan

 My resolution this year is to enter more challenges, so here I go on the second one. I have done this for the Hip to be Square Challenge on Hels Sheridans Pinkleart Blog
Tim Holtz Ideaology corners, grungeboard letters and shapes, metal and distress inks
Thin metal sheet
flower die
papers and card
Cuttlebug embossing folders
Paperartsy ephemera
Melt Pot, bronze and gold embossing UTEE
Text stamp
Mica - Perfect Pearls
First I cut loads of squares of paper in plain and pattern card and then embossed in the Cuttlebug.  The edges are inked in Fired Brick distress ink. I dipped the letters and shapes into the melt pot to coat them in UTEE, I  love the bubble effect it makes, probably due to the moisture content?  They are also brushed with Perfect Pearls in pink and gold
The flowers were die cut and rolled from art metal, they are easy to make but can get a little sharp on the edges.  Care is needed when removing from the die as it tears easily. Metal corner protectors on each corner for decoration and the close up of the Paper Artsy ephemera border.
A text stamp has been applied to hot utee on stampboard
