Quixotic Challenges #21 - Heavy Metal


It is great to be back and showing you a card....I thought I would start with a nice simple layout to ease me in gently after a month off!

It is Wednesday so that means it is time for another Quixotic Challenge and this week Kim has chosen the theme of 'Heavy Metal' you can use pins, charms, hinges, foil..anything metal on your card. I have chosen to incorporate some eyelets, charms and hinges!

My image is one of 'Chrissy's Cuties' called Gone Fishin' from Kimmies Stamps range and I have coloured this gorgeous image with prisma pencils. This image also comes with 2 sentiments in the set. I think that is great because so often I can spend loads of time rummaging around for just the right sentiment but these ones come supplied! The edges are sponged with Old Paper Distress Ink. My photography has washed out the colour a little..need to work on fixing that!!

There is very little designer paper on this card but the little I have used is from the new Crate Paper range available from Quixotic Paperie. The mesh I got in the a little bookstore that Lilian took me and my sister too where I found a few goodies to take home :)

I also wanted to let you know that for this week there will be 10% off all charms, pins, spacers, jewels, pearls and Prima flower centres from Wednesday 14th April 2010 to Wednesday 21st April 2010 at the Quixotic Paperie.

Hope you have time this week to join in the challenge. please stop by the blog for some great inspiration from the DT!

Thank you all for the great welcome home. I think we are all back now in the right time zones :)
