Leo the Lion:
This was created with brown metal with a silver core. After molding, I used a sanding block to remove the brown metal. I then used green rubbing cream on the grass and gold rubbing cream on the lion. Because the rubbing cream will never dry on the metal, I set it using a matte setting spray. The metal will usually have rough edges, so to hide them, I created a frame with the brushed gold card stock. Layered that on brushed brown card stock and then brushed green card stock. The card is a 5.5" x 5.5" square.
I think this one is my favorite by far. The camera will not capture the teal color of this. It is looking more turquoise, but trust me, it looks amazing in real life. This was done with black metal with a silver core. I tried to sand this one, but found out really quickly that the contours of this would not allow that. So, this ship was entirely scrapped. I used a teal Bic marker on the water and then matched that with card stock for the base of the card. I used the matte silver card stock to frame the ship and then added a shiny black card stock (matte card stock did not look good at all). This card is going to my good friend's son because I thought about him the entire time I made this ship.
Thank you so much for looking!
