 Brand New Complete Cosmic Shimmer Precious Metals Collection

 These are absolutely stunning,  below is a sample I have made using his 'Copper' Precious Metals.

Products used:- All of which can be found on Phill's website - www.honeypotcrafts.co.uk

This Is What I Did :-

Using Craft Card Stock I cut 2 pieces  8 x 6.5 and 6 x 5

Then using White Card Stock I cut 2 pieces 7.75 x 6.25 and 5.75 x 4.75

Next I used the Copper Gilding Wax and covered the 2 white pieces of card.

Once this was dry I buffed it up with a soft cloth, then embossed it using the Swirling Hearts Embossing Folder.

I then layered the 2 largest pieces flat and the 2 smallest pieces on pads.


I chose this sentiment using From The Heart Collection Dies.

After cutting it out I used Copper Embossing Powder and heat embossed it, then attached it to the card using pads to give dimension.

Finishing Touches

Using scraps of Craft Card I cut several flowers out.

Taking the Complete Petals I sprayed them with Copper Mister Spray.

Then I used Copper Embossing Powder on the Open Petals. I then shaped and layered these together, and attached to the card using small pads.

Finally I added Copper Twinkles to the edges of the closed petals and Copper P.V.A. to the stamen.

                                                 Happy Crafting
