Card &Trinchie

Hi ya. well it's a bit late but hey I was up until 4am last night. I was at Asda at midnight buying New Moon and of course I had to watch Twilight & New Moon (so sad I know) but I wasn't the only person at Asda at midnight waiting for NEW MOON. ;0)

Now on to the card, over at Ginger Snap Creations  the theme is a colour challenge, Copper,Rust or ginger and I have made a copper metal card and some copper glitter for good measure lol. I am also entering this for Quirky Crafts   whose theme is Flowers.

Here you can see the close up of the double flower with copper brad. I really like the mesh flower it adds to the already existing texture.

On to my Trinchie which I am also entering for Ginger Snap creations same colour theme of Copper, Rust & Ginger. This is also for Something Completely Different (SCD) challenge which this month are 'Trinches' and this week is 'music'. I made this on Sunday and having been to church I was thinking how the hymns moved my soul and this is how the sentiment came to mind.

You can really see the texture here of the rust I love this technique. I have used some DP then distressed with DI, die cut the lock & Key from copper then aged with Distressing powder. I really am happy with the effect I love this technique. I hope you like these please do go have a look at the challenges and the DT examples. And I want to hear all about your twilight madness (if I am not the only one that is lol) Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Cuttle Bug die cut machine, Ef & Tim holts  Alteration Die (Sizzix). Copper sheet metal. DP Making Memories (MM) flowers MM Sentiments Cuttle bug die cut & my own. Distress inks & Diistrss powders Tim Holtz (Ranger).

Just love your twinchie! The rusty metal really makes a great embellishment! I love making inchies and twinchies! My Birds of a Feather are 2x2 but they looked a lot smaller when I downloaded them! I just couldn't stop! Do you ever have those challenges where you want to make more than one entry because the theme is so awesome?

Thanks for stopping by and visiting me today! Have a great week!

Sending Big Hugs to you
