Show us your Metal at Try it on Tuesday

It's time for another challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this time we would like you to 'Show us you Metal'
So as long as there is 'metal' on your project -  however you interpret this - if its metal/paint effects or whatever,  just let us know  and we would love you to join us, but remember, you can only enter 5 challenges including ours.


For my metal, I have used this  lovely metal birdcage charm, which has been in my stash for quite a while.  My image is Crafty Individuals, coloured with Distress Markers and chalked whilst still in the Nesti frame. I also edged it with Gold EP.  The script background was stamped and embossed with Gold EP. The raised area on the embossed corner was swiped with Gold pigment ink, sprinkled with Gold EP, but then I brushed some of the powder off  as I wanted a more distressed look to this.

My talented teamies have some wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over here to take a look.

I am entering this at :
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes
  Sweet Stampin - Not Cute
  Sister Act challenge - Anything Goes

That's it for now, except to say thanks for looking and I really do appreciate you comments.
