Metal - No!


This weeks challenge at Tuesday Taggers is to not use any patterned papers and to create your own backgrounds so I thought I'd go for a metal look by embossing and distressing some silver card and stamping Owlie also onto silver card, I added a die cut flourish and frame. The large background is spritzed distress inks with added cosmic shimmer ( there's also a moon in the background). The picture looks darker than it really is.

This is a great success Maureen, and looks quite mysterious. That little owl stamp is really versatile.
