Metal Embossed Fifth Avenue Floral


Roll of metal foil was purchased at Michael's. Stamp flower on foil using black Staz On.

Close Up.
Cut out flower. Highlight veins and center of flower using a Sharpie marker. Other markers (SU and Copics did not work on the foil.) Using a dry embossing stylus, lightly trace black stamped lines.

Flip flower over and dry emboss along lightly etched lines, applying a bit more pressure.
For the flower center I used SU liquid glue, some of the small silver beads from the Pretties kit and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds. I love my little scoop that I use for sprinkling on all of my embossing powders and glitters. It is a Baskin Robbins Christmas ornament and the little spoon is the perfect size and looks pretty cute on my desk.

Close up of finished flower. The Dazzling Diamonds give the photo more colors, it is pretty much all silver in real life, not multi-colored.
