Heavy Metal

That's the challenge at Anything Goes and I think I'm just in time to enter. I've used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches

It's not quite heavy metal as it's the bottom of a foil container. I went to a Plant & Cake sale at the village hall yesterday and although there were some lovely cakes, I only came away with some shortbread fingers and they were in this container (yes I have eaten them all!)

I cut the bottom out and smoothed it with the edge of my bone folder then cut the cars out with Marianne dies. I'm really pleased at how they came out

I've added quite a bit of sillicone glue to the back of the card so it won't crush. The bottom backing paper is from my stash and the top one is from a Wild Rose Studio pack. The sentiment is from an Inkylicious set called Journey. I've added a strip of mirror card which has been through the Cuttlebug in one of my favourite embossing folders for men. I've sanded it lightly and added some blue alcohol inks to take most of the shine off it. I'm also entering this into the Joanna Sheen challenge which is Recycle and the Cards For Men challenge which is Anything Goes
