(not so) heavy metal

Feeling guilty about my last entry to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where it's about using metal on your project, and I used a staple.

Also wanted to make another attempt at a mixed media card with wings for the HLS Mixed Media challenge. Not just feathers.

So I made this!


This mixed media panel started off as a remnant from an ink-sprayed-through-a-stencil project. When working with colored embossing paste recently, I used the leftovers on the remnant, swiping it over a stencil gifted me by Loll T. (Thanks, Loll)

A peek-a-boo hole backed with a heat embossed sentiment from Neat and Tangled Everyday Circles, a multi-layered Memory Box Theo Butterfly cut from glitter CS and Easter egg dyed crepe paper (yep!) and a metal charm finished off my card.


Thanks for visiting! I'm visiting the following challenges too:
Little Tangles - Die Cutting
The Challenge - Masculine (I went with the black and metal of the photo)

Uniko Studio - Metallics

Miss Maria, I love this card. The colors, textures, and little peek-a-boo are fabulous. Easter egg dye...on crepe paper... What a clever, clever idea and one I bet will find its way all over blogland. These colors and the stenciled design are so cool. Such a fun card. Amazing! Bev
