Yesterday a new challenge began at Squigglefly's blog and this week is Marlene's Marvels who get to inspire you! Marlene has issued a Heavy Metal Challenge. No, you don't have to get out your old record albums or paint your face up like Gene Simmons to play along! LOL! Marlene wants you to use metal on your project! Try brads, or staples, or eyelets, or some of that fun art foil! For my card I went the cheap route and used plain old tin foil from my kitchen cupboard!

I used MakeUp Queen for my image and colored her with Copic markers. I went a little heavy on her blush, but that was so my sentiment would make more sense! At least she doesn't look like Gene Simmons, right? LOL!
I used some silver embossing powder on her earrings and bracelet, and then I filled the middle of the earring with glitter. The background is a piece of tin foil covered cardstock that I embossed with an embossing folder. The sentiment is computer generated and popped up with pop dots.
The card base even has a metallic sheen to it!
I hope you'll go have a look at what the Marvels have done with this challenge. They have all done a fantastic job and used metallic elements in such fun ways. Play along yourself for a chance to win some free Squigglefly!
Have a great day, and thanks for looking!
