Heavy Metal

Happy Friday Babe-a-roonies! Today's challenge was to use metal on our card and I had NO problem with this because I have metal trinkets coming out of my wazoo! I most often use them on masculine cards but this time I thought I'd pair some up with arivedercibella.

Doesn't she look like she's taking off to Paris or Italy all ready to do some shopping and dining and drinking some really good wine! Ahhhhhh.....okay, wake up Linda...dream is over.

I stamped her on bella's BESTEST paper and paired her up with some paper from an older Basic Grey 6x6 pad which I don't know the name of because I no longer have the cover. I used the following copic markers to colour her up, added some shading with pencil and the sponging around the edge was with Distress Ink in Pumice Stone.

E000, 00, 11, 31, 34, 37
G40, 12, 82, BV11, W0, 2, 4
BG70, 72, 75

Our challenge next week will be PAPER PIERCING....use a needle, a piercing tool, maybe your sewing machine with no thread but get some teeny tiny holes in there somewhere and play along!

That's it for today! Have a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend!
