My time to Craft 58


My time to Craft Challenge 58 is Metallica and gives me a perfect opportunity to try out a new technique I discovered this week using acetate, crumpled foil an old book and inks which you can find here. It's super messy and I added my own slant by using Glimmer Mists along with the alcohol ink so you get some extra glitz - remember, glitter makes the world go round - doesn't it ?

Both stamps are PB, the main image 2407K stamped with black stayzon, highlighted with an Inkssentials opaque pen and the swirly one 2636K stamped with versamark and embossed with detail clear. The edges of the card have been distressed with TH antique linen, rubbed with versamak and dipped into detail gold to highlight them as has the black mat. I have added some punched out butterflies from another piece made up using the same foil technique.
