Heavy Metal

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch, Double D Challenges, and The Paper Players. I loved these challenges because it allowed me to pull out supplies that I haven't used in a long while. Here is my card for today, enjoy!


Above: The metallic effect is all over this card. Yet it still has tons of white space! The 'shine' sentiment was foiled using the Minc and placed over a dark brown foam shadow.  The leaves are from a card kit (SSS I believe) colored using Copic markers and then foiled using the same color as the large 'shine' sentiment. Left/Below: This shot illustrates the metallic foil out of the light. It illuminates the colors of the foil against the autumn colors of the leaves. Right/Bottom: This shows the card in both light and dark. A kind of ombre effect. All the white really allows the elements to pop off the card.
  

A detail shot of all the elements on the card. All done using the Minc. The dark matte craft foam was a wonderful touch allowing the 'shine' sentiment to... well... shine!

Challenges Entered:
