Metallica ATC

I am making 18 of these for a swap :)
So simple, yet so interesting I think

July 23, 2007


I couldn't help myself today, I had to make a canvas for another swap (yahoo group) and decided I'd make a few at a time, so here is one that I made for Wednesday Stamper :)
"Bold, Brave and True"

A little canvas for a new challenge

well I hope I've done this right...my first submission to "Inspire me Thursday"
The theme is "Goddess" and I have made a 5"x7" canvas

flashy strappys

I made these devine little tab straps with fusible film, "Scotch" double sided tape and clear embossing powder...

*lay a strip of stationary type double sided tape on a piece of glossy cardstock
*place fusible film onto it and trim if needed, heat to distort and flip over
*sprinkle clear embossing powder onto sticky side and heat to set
*punch a hole at each end and use a brad or eyelet to attach to card, etc

a torso for Cecile

To help Cecile of Unique Stitching promote wonderful fusible film I created this 10 inch torso shrine

a little housie for Heather

I sat down this evening to make this little hanging housie set for Heather...I hope she likes it, as you can see each housie is very small, they are perfect size to go on ATCs in fact. The first image uses some copper shim that I hand scrolled, the second uses gold shim and the last uses fusible film.
