Hello everyone! What a fun challenge at Meljen's Designs this week: use metal on your project. It can be a little or a lot! I decided to go with a lot!
Do you know how hard it is to photograph metal?! It took me several tries to get a picture that I was happy with. I used Hot Air Balloon colored with Copic markers and I also used Little Stitched Cloud. To create the background, I used a piece of craft metal. It came in a 12 x 12 sheet and I have had it forever, so I am not sure who made it. I printed Little Stitched Cloud several times in a couple of sizes and cut them out. I used them as a template to pierce the metal with my Tim Holtz piercing tool. I also used a larger sized Little Stitched Cloud for the sentiment and a smaller one for the embellishment. All of the images are popped up with leftover stamp foam for a lot of great dimension. I found the lace trim at a local antique mall along with some great buttons and other fun embellishments! You never know what you will find!
I am also going to link this up in the Blitsy Linky Party! Love that website! So many great crafty finds!
I can't wait to see how you get creative with your metal embellishments!
