A Heavy Metal Challenge Card


Do you know what I love? RED! Without the foiled paper layer, this card is just plain boring. I cut the panel to size then ran it through my Cuttlebug with the swirly vine patterned folder (from the new release, can't remember the name of it).

The images are from Prickley Pear - I've been eyeing this particular butterfly for awhile and finally got it inky! I colored the image with Copic markers and added some Clear Spica glitter pen and red glitter *strategically* over the top of some parts for sparkle, which you can't see in the photo unless you click on it for the Giganormous version. Drawback to shiny red paper....hard to photograph, even with no flash, infinity board and bright-yet-indirect lighting. Sheesh!

This is my entry for the Y.ou K.now Y.ou R.ock challenge this month - Heavy Metal. Foil paper is metal too, I say!

9 people made my day!:
