Metally Challenged!

Over on the Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge blog today the new theme is "Metal". Since I submitted a 10 Seconds Studio metal piece for last weeks "Numbers" challenge, I thought I'd take a different tack with this one.

I stitched across the tag with copper wire (and it was REAL copper wire, not the silver stuff with brown dye on it!) and twisted some of it to make a heart embellishment with a key in the centre. Inevitably, other metal crept into frame too, including the two screw head brads (which I love, and though I have lots of them I'm already worrying about the day they're all gone, lol). The red heart was made with white paper clay which was then coloured.

This is also the first project I've photographed with my new camera and everything seems to be in focus - YAY! :)

I hope you like it :) As ever, click the pics to see a larger view!

Why not pop over to the challenge blog and see the amazing entries by the rest of the design team? Even better, join in the fun! :)

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $25 gift voucher again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try?
