Heavy Metal!


Hi Good Friends

I'm back today as it's a new challenge over at Anything Goes....  and this time the theme is 'Heavy Metal'... noooo, not the music...we just had to use metal on our DT cards!

I'm not wonderfully happy with mine as it was done in a bit of a rush... (why am I so disorganised??)..  but it does have metal on it...  so it'll have to do!

I love the image... it's from A Day For Daisies and is called Little Dancer Two - such a delight to colour and if I'd have had more time, I would have decoupaged the skirt.  All of the other items I've used have been sitting around my craft room for yonks...  the sequins and the little metal heart I've had for at least five years, the seam-binding probably the same...  and the metal filigree corner (Hobby House) I've had for a couple of years.... same with the textured bazzil (which I rubbed with my sanding block to distress).  Ooooh I did use a relatively new Nestie - it's called Stately Circles and I got that in early Feb.  Colouring is of course done with a mix of copics and promarkers..  and then there's the glamour dust....  well she's a ballerina... she has to have glamour.... yes??

Don't forget to pop over to the Anything Goes Challenge blog to check out the creations my fab teamies have come up with!

Hope your week is going well so far...  my lovely OH is off for a few days from tomorrow...  so we're hoping for a bit of sunshine so we can do some gardening, oh, and errrr possibly go out for the odd pub lunch or two!

Big hugs to all and Happy Crafting

PS - if you're looking Mary.... there's no lipstick or pink cheeks on this one!  Do I at least chalk up one?? x

  3. It's a good thing I was sat down when I saw this. NO PINK. Hope your recovery is going well!! LOL
    She's lovely Christine, I love purple (almost as much as I love pink) so she's a sure winner.
    Love the way you've incorporated the metal heart with the ribbon too.
