A little bit of Metal ........

Hello there,

As promised yesterday, I'm back with my latest make for Less is More
It's Recipe week this week, and the girls have chosen ......
We have to add something made from metal to our designs ....... it can be anything from charms to diecuts, brads to eyelets .... the choice is ours.

Here's mine .......

I've added a cute little metal bird charm ......

and ..... I've also used some gilding flakes, adding a nice metallic finish to the birdcage  ...... not sure if this counts though.

I masked off a section down the side of a piece of white cardstock then added some colour using Distress inks.  The masks were then removed and the Kaisercraft Bird Cage was stamped using Black Versafine ink.
I stamped the bird cage again, moving it slightly to the right of the first image and this time I used IndigoBlu Flitter Glu and then added Sheffield Steel Mega Flakes .....

You can still see some of the black stamped image coming through, adding more detail to the cage.

The sentiment is from Magnolia ........

and the branch at the top is an old Hero Arts stamp.

As always I've finished off the inside too ....

Well, that's another job done for this week ...... still no Tim Tag though - sigh!  Hopefully that's tomorrow's task .... no wait ..... that IS tomorrow's task!  No matter what, it's got to be finished .... last day of the month and all that.  It's also my day to post on the Creative Studios DT blog ...... good job I got my project done today then isn't it! 

Thanks for popping by .... see you all again tomorrow.

Cheerio until then .......
