Well if big is better than I guess I win the prize because my twist is a large
Faux Bronze napkin holder using the By the Tide stamp set. It had to be big to fit my lobster stamp on the die cut piece.

Here's the details...

Die cut paper ( I used Soft Suede ) using the Apothecary Accents Framelits.Ink up the entire surface with versamark ink and then heat emboss it using gold metallic embossing powder. Repeat for a total of 3 embossing, re-inking over the previous embossing and hitting it each time with more powder.
After the third layer has dried have the lobster image ready and heat the layer again and through the lobster into the hot (pot) no LOL onto the embossed layer, hold for a minute to cool and then pull off the stamp. Create a Faux Metal feel by sponging Black Stazon ink over the entire embossed area to create a desired darkness. Now you can attach a grosgrain ribbon loop to the underside of the of the Faux Metal plate using red sticky strip.
