Metallic

Good afternoon everyone. It's dry up here and the sun is trying to get out. I'm doing a quick post before we shoot off to Edinburgh to drop younger son off at his student accommodation - his first venture away from home. No doubt he'll come back regularly with his dirty washing, after all he's only going to be about half an hour up the road!
Over at Less is More this morning the Divas want to see all things metallic:

I've used Debbie Moore's metal magic to cover a piece of card (heating and embossing three times) then stamped an angel with black versafine ink into it when still hot and added a few gems to make it sparkle and layered it onto a scalloped nestie square cut from some waste silver mirri card. I've scored two lines onto the base card, stuck some gold foiled vellum from my snippets box between them then edged the lines with gold peel offs. Card is finished with a bow rescued from a Christmas cracker.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - metallic
CHNC - no sentiment
ABC Christmas - recycle plus ribbon or rhinestones
Jules Crafty Snippets - since everything came from my snippet box
