The Chocolate Metal has Arrived!

This is the Dark Chocolate brown metal from Ten Seconds Studio. Isn't it gorgeous?!?!??! I love brown anyway. Bet you would never have guessed that, right? I used alcohol inks to add bit of color, too.

So this is using one of the new Big Mama's molds. Pretty cool! Three different molds were used for the front and sides. Stamped and embossed papers cover the top and back sections.

The flower is 3 sizes of Maya Road metal flowers with Aqua paint Dabber accents. I used a large glittery brad for the center. The green pearls from KaiserCraft kind of loose the pearly look for some reason, and the yellow rhinestones don't show as well in the centers of the smaller flowers.

All in all, not a great picture, but you get the idea. This little wooden box is always fun to put a small gift in for someone special.
