Here is the result of some playing and an experiment with some Tim Holtz fun stuff.
I have had a play with Vintage core colour card and also distress crackle paint, Gold embossing powder and some very very old swede laces from a pair of trousers I had when I was about 25...! ekk! well needless to say the trousers are long gone, but I hung on the the laces as the trousers were lace up fronts! haha!! so being me even then I thought that the laces might be on use sometime... On my rummage the other day for old T -shirts I found the laces and knew exactly what I was going to do with them! tehehee...
see those 3 lovely chocolatey gold brads... they were bright orange when I started this card....
and the back
Ok so this is a close up of 1 of the brads I altered! by heat embossing them in gold, but they look chocolatey yum!
I did 3 for this card
and while doing them a little of the embossing powder in liquid form dropped off the brad onto the paper I was working on and formed a lovely little faux pearl! so I made some more, by dipping a stick into the embossing powder and heating it! repeating it made all these faux pearls! you can see them on my hand in the picture above In the one below is a picture of me making them I did the rest on my glass fridge bar as they come off of that better....
