ABC Challenge - M is for........

........Metallic!


I have used a Whiff of Joy image "Henry Celebrating Mouse", which was sent to me by Helen. This has been coloured with watercolour pencils and Whispers pens.
Most of the papers have been printed from the Bearly Mine cd rom Designer Extreme vol 1.
I have used a doily lace Martha Stewart punch and some spotted ribbon.
The "metallic" cupcakes have been cut out of some foil cat food trays using a Sizzlit die. I've also added a few brads .
I hope you can join us at the ABC challenge this week, I look forward to seeing your work. This week we are joined again by Samantha as guest designer who is offering another prize but you'll have to check out her blog to find out what it is!
