Challenge 54 at Artful Times

I love this theme At Artful Times which is to make a badge, button or brooch with any medium you like, though I feel I  haven't done it justice, time just ran away with me and I have been away on a canal break, I'll say no more other than it's ticked of the bucket list.


For my simple brooch I have used a chipboard disc and embossing powders starting with 2 layers of ultra thick, this gives a nice surface to then add your colour embossing powders the nice thing is if you don't like what you have added you can just add another colour on top there are a few colours you can't see but all add the finished effect, once I was happy with the colours I edged with silver powder,stamped the flower with versamark and embossed with black.Finished with a little lace trim and a brooch back.




Did you know that the old ink it up embossing powders with the clear lids they are translucent .

Hope you will be inspired to join us at Artful Times  where you will see more fab ideas
