Metallic Bee Canvas

I love the metallic trend! and it's even better, when you can distress the finish. The new Tim Holtz Kraft Core Metallic Collection is amazing. I've created a trendy bee canvas to show you just how much fun you can have creating with this new paper.

 Metallic Bee Canvas Supplies:
Step 1. Cut strips of the copper paper 7 3/4" x 1 1/2" long. Emboss the paper. Since the paper is longer than the embossing folder, place the folder on the un-embossed end of the paper, line the design up and run through the machine again to emboss the full strip. 


 Step 2. Distress the raised areas with the Sand-it Gadget. This will reveal the kraft core.

Step 3. Add a layer of black slightly wider to the back of the embossed strip. Distress the edges with a tool or scissors.


 Step 4. With strong double sided tape, attach to the canvas.

Step 5. Die cut and emboss the bee using the gold paper. Distress the raised areas with the Sand-it

Step 6. Ink over the sanded areas with black ink.

Step 7. Use foam adhesives to mount the bee on the canvas.


This was a quick and stylish project to make. Wouldn't you Bee Happy to give it a try? ~ Gini
