Using Metal


Just when everything is going well, something will happen to throw a curve into the order.  My computer had to be sent in for warrantee work.  My screen died!  So we continue, but at a much slower pace. 

Here is my contribution for this week's challenge at My Heart Pieces: Use Metal.  I started with 'Baby Bee Enjoys Fall' and coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils then I fussy cut it out.  I took a blues sheet of Spellbinders metal and trimmed it to 3 7/8x 6 7/8" then embossed it twice, once with leaves along the bottom and swirls on the top 3/4 of the sheet.  I used brown StazOn ink along the leaves then green alcohol ink to try to make it like dirt for the pumpkins.  I sanded the swirl part to get some dimension.  I matted this onto gold textured paper and then shimmer green cardstock by DCWV. (Die Cuts With A View)  I folded a copper sheet in half to make a 5 1/2x 8 1/2" card.  I added a metallic ribbon with wheat and copper accents along the right side of the card.  I adhered the matted panel on top of the card, then added the pumpkins and Baby Bee.  Finished off with accenting with 3 metal leaf brads along the bottom and stickles on the bee's wings.
