House Charm and playing with my Big Shot

Yesterday I had a play date with my Big Shot and using the Tim Holtz Embossing Folder, this is what I came up with.I used pieces of copper and treated it with Liver of Sulphor. I think it looks cool and I will use the copper pieces to make a little book. 

 Below is a House charm I just finished - should have cleaned the glass before taking the photo.

Thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely comments. Have a wonderful weekend dear friends.

Hugs and love,

Oh, how beautiful!!!!!!!!

I do wish I could make a similar thing, but sometimes getting hold of the chemicals is tricky.

I love what you have made.

Hi Marie,
Beauty just surronds you in your studio of art!
And the house charm looks great even with the glass not clean, we would have never noticed.

Love your altered style, Bo-ho chicness.
You rock our gypsy souls girl!
Thank you for your beautiful visit to my place and taking notice of my new header. I was a bit fearful when I took the photos if it would work out...who dare take pictures of messy bed sheets and some burlap adding in the chairs and calling it all Burlap Luxe :)

Thank you dear soul.

Hi Marie,
I love your metal booklet. I have yet to work with metals and liver of sulphur. Would love to learn. Tim Holtz's stuff is fantastic. And your charm is just charming! Love it!
Have a great Friday!

Suz said...

I love how your cover looks and love the house charm. I am starting to feel challenged to go home and start creating some of these things that seem so hard to me. I have done soldering and I have liver of sulfer...I just need to dive in! We leave California on Saturday and I hope the next month will be filling with crafting.

Hi Marie. The metal looks authentic, as though you discovered it on a rummage.As for the house charm, so adorable. Soldering still eludes me.
Have a wonderful weekend.
