This Thursday - Challenge 21 Marvelous Metallics and Theme Thursday

This weeks challenge was metal,as always great DT and prize... on an earlier challenge we were encoraged to take inspiration from blogs and I took tine to look at the talented Rosie's blog - check it out here , in particular her metal art. I had also seen on the Tanda forum a link to The Scrapbook Lounge anither great site in particular this link. So I prepared the can and tried various mediums/ punches / embossing tools and initially created a pretty frame which I can use in a future project...
FRAME


However the waste from the frame is a smidge smaller than an ATC so I decided to decorate it and use it as an ATC! This fits with this weeks Theme thursday challenge too..
