Emboss a Vintaj Natural Brass Altered Metal blank using the Woodland Birds DecoEmboss die. Lightly dab on white paint, wipe paint off of raised areas and let dry. Buff with the Metal Reliefing block to highlight the raised designs. Sprinkle with blue embossing powder. Tap excess powder back into container and heat to melt the powder to reveal the shiny surface using a heat tool (or melting pot). For added flair, wrap the Passion Flower Petal Filigree (Vintaj Item# F400R) around the blank. Attach jump rings through the hole at the top of the blank to form a pendant. Loop a length of chain through the top jump ring. Remove a link in the chain. String a bead encased in Vintaj Filigree Bead Caps onto an eye pin and attach to the chain. Also attach a crystal bead (using a head pin and jump ring) and the Beech Leaf fastenable (Vintaj Item# FS018). Add a clasp at the ends of the chain using jump rings to form a necklace.
