Rock On!

One of my favorite blogs, Artistic Avenger, is having a little contest. And you know me, can't let a contest go by with out trying! But, this is a good one. It is for a free pass to a fun blog that has lots of ideas for using the Big Shot! I would LOVE to win!

Anyway, here is my attempt at her sketch:

My mom gave me this really cool roll of sheet metal that she found somewhere in the depths of her art room. She claims you can get it at the craft stores as well. So, I have been embossing it with the Big Shot (like here) as well as punching it. Its fun to play with! This card also features one of Stampin' Ups new colors called Early Espresso. It is part of the new Color Renovation (available in July.)
Love these little Vintage Tags that are in the new mini catalog. They are fun little embelishments!

And some more punched metal.
Stamps: Motorcycle, Rough Type, Just Jawing
Ink and Paper: Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Whisper White
Other: Old Olive Striped Grossgrain Ribbon, Distressing Tool, Vintage Tags, Ticket Corner Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, twine
I made two cards with this great sketch, so come back tomorrow to see it!
