TMR - Metal ....

...  Good morning everyone!!  It's time for our new challenge at The Male Room - we'd like you to use METAL on your project.  Here's what I made:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Half Pint Heroes, Free Spirit Sentiments; Winnie & Walter - Bubble Talk
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up! - Blackberry Bliss
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Always Artichoke; Self Adhesive Metal Sheet; Cuttlebug EF - Diamond Plate; Copic Markers; SU Marker; Adirondack Alcohol Inks - Ginger, Butterscotch, Cranberry, Lime


I used a couple of challenges to make this card.  I used the sketch from the current Fusion challenge - FUSION#18 and the colours are from this week's Paper Players - PP#213.  I turned the sketch to make a landscape style card, I also used the idea of a car, but made it masculine.  I made the central panel from a self-adhesive metal sheet.  I embossed the metal and then added colour with alcohol inks (matching them as closely as possible to the Paper Players challenge colours).  I layered the panel onto a piece of green card.  I stamped the little car on white card and coloured it with Copic and Stampin' Up! markers.  I made the sentiment banner from white card, stamped the sentiment and attached it to the card with dimensional tape.  I glued the car directly to the sentiment panel.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of green card and on the white panel stamped a simple sentiment and another car.  I've also included a detail shot of the metal panel where you can really see the colours!

The metal sheet looks fantastic, Deborah. Love the embossing, one or two of us did this, but each one in a different way, cool! Sorry I'm late visiting too. Normal service will be resumed from now on ;)
