This week over at SCD its time for a bit of metal - metal moo's to be exact!! lolxx. Ang has chosen the theme and ever since last April's Ally Pally visit and seeing Linda Brown and Leandra, aka Mrs Paperartsy, she's been obsessed!! so, its no surprise that she chose metal for the theme....
Here's my metal moo:-
The base is a piece of white card cut to size. I then took three pieces of metal ensuring that they were big enough to overlap the edges. I then ran two of the pieces thro' the cuttlebug with different embossing folders. I then added alcohol inks to these pieces and then sanded off the colour on the raised pieces. The middle section was written after seeing a tutorial on Tacho tuesday - if you've never watch this you should not only will you learn something but have a good giggle at the same time. This middle section was then spritzed with glimmer mists. The pieces were then adhered to the moo and folded over with a spare moo on the back as that folded metal can be rather sharp!!
We have also announced our new DT members. I'm pleased to say that Laura and Tammara have both agreed to join our small band I'm hoping that they'll enjoy the challenges already set and come up with some great ones too!!
We took Sian off to Cheltenham on Sunday. The run up to the departure was fine. Five minutes from home it hit me what we were doing, so a few tears !! then when we got there it was all systems go to get the luggage up three flights of metal circular stairs!! and get her food shop in and get her sorted before we left at 4.30pm.....only ok for about 3 mins this time before the floodgates opened again!! Sian is a level headed and sensible girl and I know that she's going to do really well at Uni - I'm so proud of her for all her achievements and the way that she goes about things - MY GIRL xx
