Simon Says Stamp and Show Some Metal



This card I made from bits of stuff I had laying around from other projects so I thought I'd try and make a card to fit the challenge this week over at SSSS.It's all about metal. For the BG I covered a piece of tin foil with alcohol inks and them put it through the CB folder textile after which I sanded a bit so the foil would show through. The bird I make by inking a piece of foil duct tape with AI and then put that through the CB folder bubbles. I also ran the cage through the CB folder bubbles and the sponged with gold acrylic paint dabber. The square medallions I also did with acrylic paint. The flower was made from brown paper using TH tattered florals die and homemade glimmer mist .
