Totally cased the box out of the Close to Nature example in the new catty.. :) aged the metal by sponging on Staz-On onto the front then gently rubbing a baby wipe across to remove the stazon from just the ridges...now it looks almost like pewter

One more thing, The embossed frame, inspired by Showmestamper's example, is done by very gently scoring a guide line into the back side with my coluzzle square grid, then running the stylus across.. notice it's sliced through in a couple places where I scored a little too hard.. but i think it adds character.. :rolleyes:
The foil is from an aluminum chafing pan that I had to brayer flat... Thanks for asking!
