Bab Humbug-Metalics

Hi, this week over at Bah humbug is Metalics.  I was struggling with this as I had no metal and then I had a brain wave. My OH beer can. I washed it out and then cut it open and covered it with Alcohol inks and ran it through a cuttlebug folder. Stamped my image with Wow gold powder. Cut it out with a spellbinders die mounted it on gold mirror card. I'm quite pleased with it. So will try this again.
Thanks for visiting  by blog it's much appreciated. Happy crafting Hugs x ChrisB

  2. Christine that's an absolutely brilliant tip! As you probably read I've had no luck with metal, I just get cut fingers! You must have been very careful :) The colours on your card are beautiful.
