CAS Mix Up October reminder post

Time for the reminder post at The CAS Mix Up this month.

This Months Challenge is technique based and is Metal.....

Metal can be Real or Faux.......
or even a Metal looking technique.....
You are only limited by your imagination.

Have fun and I am so looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations in the gallery.

There are video links over on the blog too, to inspire you further....
Along with the amazingly creative DT and our wonderful guest designer Pat 

This is my card..... 

I have used Stamping, Wrap Technique, Stencilling, and Heat embossing
The Wrap Technique has been used with Brusho's and water
and produced a metal looking background. 
I used a stencil and some crackle paste, through a leaf stencil for texture.
The die cut Leaf sprig has been heat embossed several times with silver.
The little die cut heart has been layered and embossed with frantage powders.
Finishing off with die cutting the background and adding a black strip 
and stamped sentiment at the bottom.
The edges of the background have also been heat embossed with silver.
The detail photo shows the wonderful effect from the wrap technique 
and the texture from the crackle paste and stencil. 

Lots of Faux Metal on this card and I had so much fun making it.
Looking forward to your creations and wonderful creativity in the gallery....
Have Fun.....
Crafty Hugs x.
