It Ain't Heavy Metal!

The theme over on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week is "Metal", so when I started making a frame for last week's piece I decided to encrust it with metal embellishments to fit with this week's theme!

I painted the frame with a mixture of Red Pepper and Espresso paint dabber and sanded it to give a smooth surface and to distress the edges. After that, it was simply a case of raiding my embellishment boxes! All items were fixed in place with Claudine Hellmuth's Matte Multi Medium.

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)
