Cute Card Thursday #46 - Metallica


This week on Cute Card Thursday the theme is "Metallica" - use some metal on your card i.e. charms, wire, spacers, eyelets, metal coloured card, fabric or paper etc.

I so love this Tilda and even got my Polychromos Pencils out to colour her. I know!! It's been a while. Loved using them again actually. I have used Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Backed Canvas sprayed with Adirondack Colour Washes and Glimmer Mists for the red background. It's also really sparkly gold but the photo hasn't picked it up (I should have used my Photographic Studio!). Paper is Basic Grey Bittersweet and I have used Sizzix Swirls die to cut the gold accents, Prima flowers, some Anita's Ribbon and a little charm from Scrapz(which I coloured with Sakura gel pens)for the embellishment. Sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly.

We have the lovely DawnyP as our GD too so you need to pop on over and check out the loveliness on the CCT Blog!
