Tilda & Co - Arts Apart Metal


Tilda & Co challenge this week is a little different you are asked to use metal somewhere on your creation, my fellow DT members have come up with some great ideas so why not come and join us, there is a great Sprial Whisper stamp up for grabs as well. Click
here for the link.

I started off this challenge by thinking I would use a metal charm and some wire on my card, then I realised I have a lot of metal CD tins from PP and they would look great decorated, so here is the result. I stamped and painted two sizes of Magnolias Dog Rose stamps then cut them out, I then coloured white card with a babywipe and distress ink, put it through a CB folder and then cut the circle with a Nestie. This gorgeous cross stich tilda was then coloured and cut, they were all attached to the CD tin with Pinflair Glue Gel, fantastic for sticking anything to metal, added some glitter to the centre of the flower and some half pearls around the edge. Will be doing some more of these. Hope you like.
