It's a Metal Morning!

I had to laugh when I read today's Technique challenge at Splitcoast! We are to use an aluminum can to stamp & cut on our card. Well this morning I taught my daughter's 3rd grade art class and our project just happened to be "Mexican Metal Tooling"! Since we're getting ready for Fiesta here in San Antonio, the kids were to draw a fiesta related item on a piece of 3x3 paper (cascarones, maracas, cactus, sombrero, chili peppers, etc...). Next they transferred their drawing onto a piece of aluminum and color it with permanent markers.

So, since I've had a bit of practice with this, I decided to do 2 cards!

Metal Flowers: Stamp: Polka Dot Punches; Ink: Stazon black & Bic permanent markers; Paper; Raspberry Tart, Pink Passion, Pretty in Pink; Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, Scallop Circle Punch

Metal Butterfly Trust: Stamp: Our Daily Bread Design's Scripture Collection 2; Ink: Rose Red; Paper: Raspberry Tart, PTI Kraft; Accessories: Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch

Thanks for looking!
