this week's challenge over on the simon says stamp and show blog is to use metal...and i had to play along with that theme, right?
i've used 10 seconds studio metal and embossed it by hand, and with folders, i've inked it, stamped it, cut it out, glittered it...accented it with glossy accents and sanded it! i've also used metal tags, metallic glitter and metallic paint...as well as a couple of staples...so i think i've got the metal thing covered... ;)
one of the things i love about metal work is how versatile it is and how much dimension you can get into even a basically flat project...
i was particularly chuffed with how this rose turned out...its cut in metal and alcohol inked, then covered in distress stickles so its all sparkly...very vintage looking :)
ooooh....and i haven't shown you the whole thing...so...can you tell what it is yet??? lol
