Shopping Our Stash - Heavy Metal

Hello, Crafty Peeples,

We have a fun challenge for you this week at Shopping Our Stash.  We want you to use some kind of metal (real or created) in your project.  It is also a great opportunity to break out some of the Rocker Dudes and create some fun Man Cards!  My post is a bit late.  I have had a few technology glitches.

I created my "metal" playing card using Tim Holtz's "Poker Face Set" embossing Folders.  I applied duct tape to a scrap piece of card stock and embossed it with the King of Clubs.  I applied  Jenni Bowlin "Spiced Tin" Acrylic paint and wiped it away with a paper towel.  That was followed by a coat of Jenni Bowlin "Fountain Pen".

The Metal Medallion is by Fab Scraps.  The Silver and Black Charm is from my stash!

This is one of those challenges that is open to so many interpretations.  I look forward to seeing your take on Heavy Metal!   Thanks for stopping by!   Hugz,  Chana
