CCT #46- Metallica: 'Yeee Haw!'

CCT this week wants to see some sort of metal on your card so charms, brads, etc. I tend to like using metal embellisments for 'boy' cards and it was a good excuse to play with another cute 'Greeting Farm' stamp in my Silly Monkey DT package.

Stash Used:

  • Image: 'Sheriff Ian' The Greeting Farm stamp
  • Colouring: Copics with clear glaze pen over his boots, belt & hat trim to give it a 'leathery' sheen :) and glitter pen on his buckle and sheriff badge
  • Papers: Blue Bazzil cardstock, Cherry Arte Seasons 'warmth' paper plus various bits to match from my scrap box
  • Others: strip of hessian type fabric I found whilst clearing out!, jumbo brad & 2 metal stars (my bits of metal for the challenge). Martha stewart border punch. The wheel and the 'yee haw' are sizzix dies.

It's snowing again today but only ever so slightly compared to other parts of the UK so take care and wrap up warm whereever you are (unless you're in a nice warm country!) Right off to make a thank you card my sister has asked for and I'm hoping my WoJ DT stamps will arrive today so am going to stalk the postie ;)

Have a good day and thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment :)
