Hello and welcome to the new Mixed Media Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers. We have some fun for you this time if you are up for a challenge because we want you to use metal on your project.
I came up with this card
I pulled out some 36 gauge Aluminium Tooling Foil from my stash and used the Sue Wilson Classic Adorned Squares dies to cut the decorative panel. The aluminium is quite thick so I ran the die through my cutter twice and it cut beautifully.
I wanted something to back the die cut with so I took some watercolour card and used the smooshing technique and some distress markers to colour it
The outer frame was debossed with another die from the set and I cut round the edge before placing it on the base card.
After I adhered the metal panel, I die cut the central black panel from some textured card and stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Sending and Wishing stamps. To finish things off, I die cut the 'Sending' from the leftover blue background card and white card, then stacked them so that the white card shadowed the blue.
I do hope you will join in with us this time and if you'd like some more inspiration before you start, please visit my talented Teamies over at the Happy Little Stampers blog.
