This little 4.25″ square card was inspired by the Y.ou K.now Y.ou R.ock! challenge Blog! The August challenge is to make a card with metal on it. Lots of metal! You can see Deb and Julie’s samples HERE.
Here’s the heavy on the metal 😉
The focal image is stamped in Staz On, and colored in with 8 different colors of sharpie markers on a metal circle plate. I added silver metal eyelets and a metal butterfly charm too. The mat behind the Martha Stewart designer paper is a green metallic cardstock from DCWV’s Metallic Mat Stack.
I love the contrast of the cold metal against the softness of the image and the light colors of the dp.
I chose this image, because I’ve always loved the look of a metal watering can. You know, the old fashioned ones, especially when they get a bit rusty. There’s just such an earthy goodness about it!
Hope you like how I rocked the metal for this challenge! If you do, you can vote for it (and me) when the polls open on the Y.OU K.now Y.ou R.ock challenge blog from September 6th to the 15th! I’d appreciate it! 😉
So glad you stopped in! Have a great day!!
