Artful Times challenge DT piece for Heavy metal

The theme this week on Artful Times is Heavy metal, and my contribution is a key cupboard. I covered the door in green metal, and embossed it with various embossing plates, and also did some freehand ones as well with my metal wheels. I sanded the embossing very lightly to expose the silver under the green coating. A few small areas were painted with alcohol ink to give a different shade of green. The surround to the door is crackle paint. The rest of the cupboard is painted green to match my kitchen.

Beautiful project, great dimension. It may even prompt me to tackle my key box at long last.

Loving the design and the two tone green just makes it extra special :)

You must be thrilled with this Wendy. The embossing looks almost stitched in places. It makes a lovely personal addition to your kitchen - very attractive yet functional too.

This cupboard is gorgeous. I love the colour... it looks so fresh and lush. I agree with Heather... it really does look like you have stitching and even fabric in places.... very clever!
