Here's how I made my new favorite thing!!
I had SO MUCH FUN doing this project. It's the most fun I've had in a very long time. I did it by following Arlene, a Graphic45 design team member. The tutorial is featured on here on You Tube.. You can do it too!
I gathered up some metal doo dads and flowers.
I used printed key tissue paper as my base.
I added some glass circles I found at Scrap,
and I fussy cut a kitty from a piece of wrapping paper.
Here are some close ups of the finished product:
I love how all of the metal elements show up. I lightly spayed every thing with Ranger Ink - Perfect Pearls Mist - 2 Ounce Bottle - Heirloom Gold. This is not what she recommended, but I like the way it looks.
I also rubbed Metallic Rub-Ons on the tops of the elements to give a tiny bit of a color pop.
|I gave him to my daughter for her birthday, and I'm very glad she loves him too!|

Tim Holtz has similar metal items, which you can find at collage, and other craft stores, but it's also fun to use items from broken clocks.
