Heavy Metal



Helene is hosting our theme at Allsorts this week and would like to see 'Heavy Metal, but this can be just a charm, so for my metal I made up a stick pin with a metal butterfly on the top and also found a pretty little metal corner in my stash.

As Flonz Craft our our sponsors again this week I have used another of their images and I have to say I think this one really is my favourite from those I selected. I stamped the image twice onto a black and a pink DP and paper pieced the dresses and coloured the faces and arms with Copics. The background DP is Echo Park, a Cheery Lynn die, some feathers and a rose made from sheer ribbon.

Have a lovely weekend everyone and thank you for popping in, as always I value and appreciate your comments.

  11. A very lovely combination with the muted greys against the bold black & brilliant pink. Love your feathery embellishing with that pin too. The way the two dresses just sit on the edge of the die-cut panel & extend the shape is terrific.
    Take care - was thinking of you this morning.

  25. What nice colours you picked! I love the stamp you used and the way you worked them out on your card. I'm writing this in a room where it's as warm as outside: 24 degrees still, so in a few moments I'll go back downstairs to a cooler place in the house... It's sad, but at the moment its to warm in my crafting room to do much stamping... Have a nice weekend , hugs, Gerrina
