I had a large wooden W letter in my stash and when I was looking for something else I got it out and put it on my desk. I thought if I left it out I would do something with it. It worked because it started to bug me on my desk so I finished it off to hang on the wall. I painted the letter first because I was going to paint a picture on it.
I used alcohol ink directly onto the copper and let the colors blend together. When that had dried I embossed the copper in my cuttlebug machine. I used two different patterns but you could use the same one. I peeled off the backing paper and stuck the copper onto the wooden letter. Next I sprayed the copper with some Moon Glow Starburst sprays for extra color. I wanted it to collect in and around the embossing. Lastly I rubbed the sides of the letter with copper colored metallic wax.
I am happy with the way it turned out and it only took a couple of hours. I am determined to complete more of the projects I have in my stash.
