Whooooo…….I Dared again!!!

Posted by manicstamper on January 26, 2007

Had to have another go at a Daring Cardmakers challenge…….especially as this week the theme is Heavy Metal. I love metal as an element in cardmaking and I knew I had some real copper sheeting somewhere. I actually managed to find it and here are the results………………I rather liked the Wednesday Stamper challenge called Timepiece so I have sort of combined the two challenges into one.

Paper is BG Sublime……as if anybody wouldn’t know that……lol!!! Background image stamps are from Stampington and alphabets are….large not totally sure….sorry and the small are PSX.Pocket watch is cut from the real copper sheet using a Wizard die and I have grunged it slightly with a Timber Brown Stazon ink pad.The wings are German Scaps from Paper Artsy grunged with a Saddle Brown and Timber Brown ink pad.A little more metal has been added with brads.

Second card is made using artwork from an online club I belong to. The grapes around the bottle neck are cut from thick metallic card and are attached to wire. I have also used brads.

Thanks Saffa for a fab challenge.

    That card is gorgeous. Love the copper clock. I’m thinking back to the days when we’d have to do that with a stamp or template and a stylus.

    wow, 2 fantastic cards Sheila!
    I love your timepiece, the copper colour works brillaintly with the BG Sublime – why the blazes are they retiring it, I have no idea – what a shame. I think I’ll just have to hang on to all the sheets I’ve got left…
