*** Let's See A Little Metal! ***

Wow! Here we are nearing the end of April already! I sure do love Spring and seeing all the plants coming back to  life in my flower gardens. The transformation is amazing!
Today I would like to share my card for the new challenge happening over at Meljen's Designs. this week's theme is "Hardware" - use metal embellishments on your project!
I decided to go with a "Steam Punk" look so it was a natural choice to use Meljen's cute little "Steam Punk Girl" as my focus image. Here, take a look...


She definitely is a cutie! Reminds me of my granddaughter, Alanna, who was a "Steam Punk" girl this past Halloween. I printed the image out on Kraft Card Stock and coloured it with pencil crayons. I cut the image into a 1/4 circle, ink distressed the edges and matted it with some frilly lace. I used a couple of different DPs, which I ink distressed quite a bit as well. I cut out a buckle, using a die, ink it and then heat embossed it. I did the same with the sentiment after inking it onto a recycled metal tag. Five gold buttons and a ton of faux stitching helped to bring this card altogether.
To check out some more inspiration by the rest of the MD team, head on over to the Meljen's Challenge Blog. Hopefully, I'll see you project linked up in the gallery.
Until next time.
hugs,
Nancy
