Heavy Metal

We are back for another awesome Corrosive Challenge.  This challenge is called Heavy Metal and we are sponsored by Dilly Beans.  This is my first experience with Dilly Beans.  I was given this funky image called Framed Friday with Skull and I was asked to make a project using one or more metal embellishments.

I spent the day watching my little friend Sarah ice skate in her first program.  She did wonderful!!! She was dressed as a pirate, eye patch and all.  It was lots of fun watching her and all the kids and it filled me with inspiration for this project.  The costumes in the program ranged from dark pirates to dayglow green, pink and blue.  It looked like they were channeling Katy Perry, wigs and all so I thought I would go for some deep, bright colors. 

I colored my image with Copics.  I had the Doodle Bug background paper left over from another card.  I thought it was perfect since it had polka dots and so did the image.  For my heavy metal, I used a thin piece of copper.  I ran it through my BigShot with an embossing folder.  I placed it between the image and the background paper.  I also used copper eyelets.  The ribbon is from Martha Stewart.  I got it during a 50% off sale at Pat Catan's.  I don't usually buy anything MS without it being on sale.  I think the prices are just ridiculous.

Please head over to Corrosive Challenges and see what the other Design Team members have done.  They are so awesome!  Then join in won't you? 

Thanks for stopping by.

OMG, Rebecca! I LOVE this! Those colors are AWESOME!!! And I really did laugh out loud when I read your reference to Katy Perry! Too funny! Your coloring is exquisite! (How long does it take you to color an image?!) I'm especially fond of the dots behind her and that paper does go perfectly! Fabulous all around! :)

Loving these bright colors, I think Katy Perry would approve! The way you colored those dots is so great they almost look illuminated. Very cool use of the copper, just a great fun card.
