Inchie Swap

Hi everyone!
I am sharing some inchies I have made for a swap. We had to make 9 Christmas themed inchies. I managed to find stamps & dies to fit onto the inchies. Used DI to colour, The letters were die cut from red & green card. Edged each inchie with Inka Gold.
I had a small tin that some mints came in - the inchies fitted into it just right. I wondered if I could do anything with it as it looked like this :

I decided to give it a go! I gave it 2 coats of white gesso, making sure to let them dry inbetween coats. I then started covering with my favourite Inka Gold! I started with gold, then copper & green. Polishing each layer. I then stamped Merry Christmas onto the lid with Stazon.
Here's the result :

I'm really pleased with it.
I wrapped the inchies in some green tissue & placed them in the tin. I hope my swap partner likes them.
Thanks for stopping by.

DT post for Creative Artiste #20 November Challenge

Hi everyone! Time for a new challenge over at Creative Artiste.

We are sponsored this month by:

The challenge is anything goes and we would love to see your mixed media makes.
For this canvas i started by covering a canvas with bronze coloured Aztec Paint.
I then cut out a heart from black card & embossed with the hearts.
I went over this with silver Inka Gold - love this on the black card as it gives it an aged look. Went over a few of the embossed hearts with bronze Inka Gold.
I placed the heart onto the canvas & went around the edges with clear hot glue to attach it to the canvas.
I then used some gold hot glitter glue to 'scribble' around the edges. Went around the edges of the canvas with red hot glitter glue and around the inside edge of the heart.
Used the remaining glue in butterfly & heart moulds.
Once all the glue had cooled I went over with the silver Inka Gold.
Attached the heart & butterflies.
Hope you can join the challenge - pop over to the blog & see all the other DT's lovely makes.

Thanks for stopping by.
