Heavy Metal

Hi blog friends, and welcome.

The challenge at Left Of Center for the coming two weeks is sponsored by Floppy Latte, who have some stunning digital stamps in their range.  Our theme is either Left of Center and/or Metal.

I chose Vintage Bicycle 2 for my contribution this time.  I wanted it to be quite bold so I did a bit of work with image editing software, filling in the frame so that I got a silhouette, then printed it out onto acetate.

When I first saw the Spellbinders 3D M-bossabilities folder I had to have the Creative Cogs one (sad to say, you can sell me almost anything if you stick a few cogs on it) and the first thing I used it on was a piece of copper foil card.  It's been in my box of bits since as I never had anything that it worked with - until now.  I hauled it out and trimmed it. (I had to stick the bit I trimmed off the long side under the short edge so that it fit the card).  It was too bright and new-looking, but a bit of work with some Gilder's Paste in rich gold, black and patina soon sorted that out.  Finally,I attached the acetate with these rather cute screw-head brads from Creative Expressions.

I hope you like it!  Please take a minute to pop over to LOC and see what my very talented team-mates have come up with to inspire you.

Thank you for your visit - come again soon, won't you?

Crafty Hugs,

So striking- I would have never thought of printing on acetate- so clever!
