There seems to be a lot of metal art around at the moment and of course I just had to have a go. Have seen some fabulous works of art on blogs, and been sorely tempted to get the tools, especially as my Angel friends, you know who you are, are playing and coming up with some fab creations. We never want to be left out now, do we, but have reined myself in and just purchased some of the metal sheets, inked with alcohol inks, run through an embossing folder on my cuttlebug and used it as a background on a card. Easy and a bit of a cheat, I know, but whats a girl to do without any tools! Here it is.

It's fab hun, love the inky colours... as for the tools...well... i'd say if anything just get the paper stump, as it allows you to use bits of embossing folders without the use of your bug like making rubbings when you were a kid {thats how my friend wall hanging was done}
You dont need all the tools to have the all the fun xx
