My 2nd ATC and some cone flowers made that might be used for the Red Project
G45 Steampunk Debutante paper. The back ground had been embossed on. It was not a very good job, but had great texture. I painted it with Folkart metallic paint in copper added copper leaf, copper colored wire squirls. I also punched out the design from the flip side and glued them of. Before attaching the wire and the feathers I covered it in a coat of US ArtQuest PPA in Matte.
I saw a tutorial on this where the lady made the flowers using the Folkart Metallic paint. I thought they would be great in metallic red if they carried that color, and they did. Additionally, the same line of paper was used. I then embossed the edges of the cones in Zing copper embossing powder and in the center of the cone and applied some copper stickles.The paper/stems were painted with Folkart metallic antique copper.
