City Crafter Challenge Blog #249 "Love Metal"

Hello everyone,

it is time for another challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog


This week our host is Kirsty and she would like to see a project that includes a metal piece. I sure had alot of fun with that one!!

Here is what I have come up with:


When I created this card I was going through "Put some Gesso on EVERYTHING" stage...so pretty much almost every piece of cardstock you see on this card has a layer of gesso applied onto it. :)
I decided to go with sewing theme this time and make something shabby and chic as you can see...added couple of different diecuts, dress form mannequin handmade flowers, shabby bow, some metal charms and what not...


Those two pins I stuck into the bow...I made them :)


That little white round frame is silicon mold that I filled with tiny beads. The sewing machine is a Cricut cutout inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and then covered with some gesso (what a shock!)
I sure do hope you will join in on fun this week at City Crafter Challenge Blog. This week's Guest Designer is Lenet She is an amazing crafter and it is such a joy to have her with us this week!

Also please check out the amazing work from my teamies
and

I hope you enjoyed this post.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...

Love that chandelier die, gonna have to get me one of those, it's so elegant! I just love all your metal charms too, everything is perfectly laid out and brilliantly put together! Another stunner and I have pinned it for inspiration! see you out on the dance floor my friend, hugs :)
