Ikea mirror redo

I have had these Ikea mirrors around my house for...oh, at least 3 years, so I thought it was high time to actually DO something with them (ie: one of them).

All I did was take aluminum foil and dry emboss it in a Cuttlebug folder - I ran thru 3 squares at a time with wax paper in between sheets, worked like a charm!




I Modge Podged the squares onto the wood, then took some antiquing medium, rubbed it all over, then wiped off. It needed more ooomph, so I took one of my pigment ink pads for stamping & rubbed it over the raised areas & the edges. I love the way it turned out!!

Now to work on the other 8 I have left. :::sigh::
