Cracking the Metal


Over at the PaperArsty blog this week they have Suzz as the guest designer.  She's been playing with the metal card.  To see the technique, hop over to the blog here.

It is amazing and the lines and cracks you can see along the bottom half of the atc is where the metal is showing through as it's caught the light.  I stamped the image in black stazon and hi-lighted some areas with a white Posca pen and mounted onto red card.

Lovely!! Great highlights and I see the cracks on the bottom, but I think the real ATC is even more beautiful.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
