Lotstodo Week 6 - Metal Mania


The background is a piece of corrigated cardboard box with bits ripped out of it. I then covered it with various colours of acrylic dabbers, espresso, hazelnut, pitch black, silver and copper. With my new heritage wizard plate I cut and embossed the pocket watch, covered it in black acrylic and wiped most of it back off to give it an old rustic look. The stars and the arrow were cut from grungeboard with the cuttlebug and my arrow and snowflake dies, I then painted them in silver acrylic. The top right is a spinner from the idea-o-logy range by Sir Tim. Added the word 'time' using various different types of letters, painted the 'm' black and added some silver wire and painted the grungeboard 'e' with pearl acrylic.
