Faux Metal Frame by Laura

Materials used:

Firstly, I covered the plywood frame in lots of different size pieces of the Ranger Metal Foil. I'm a little bit obsessed with this product, so it will be featuring in a few more of my projects!
I then used some metal tools to make various different shapes/dents/holes in the foil and I used the Woodware Pierce It Tool and a bone folder to make the faux stitches. I then covered the whole frame with a tiny amount of the Claudine Hellmuth Studio Mini Paint - Charcoal Black. I just used my finger to spread it roughly over the frame.
When the paint was dry, I buffed it back with a bit of wire wool but I left quite a bit of the paint because I liked how it looked. I then screwed a Tim Holtz Idea-ology - Screw Eye into the frame.
I made the backing card using the Tim Holtz Metallic Stains. I just "splodged" them randomly on white card and then sprayed the card with a mister filled with water.
I then roughly dabbed the Fish Skeleton charm with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain and hung it from the screw eye with fuse wire.
Finally, I attached the backing card to the back of the frame with double sided tape.
