Metal


The challenge at CAS Mix Up this time is metal. I had fun with this die-cut bucket, cut from silver card I messed about with various ink pads and stamps to create a rustic effect.
I marked where the bucket was to be placed on my card with tiny pencil dots and then stamped the AI foliage stamps in various colours of Distress inks. The sentiment from Woodware was also stamped with Distress Ink and I'm delighted how it turned out with just one stamping. The bucket is stuck down at the edges and popped onto dimensional pads in the middle to give a little dimension.

It's also for the foliage challenge at Addicted to CAS
