It's Metal

"Metal" is the theme for Less is More this week.  Although it doesn't photograph well, my card  features a tag layered with metal flashing tape embossed in a folder and painted with black acrylic paint, which was then wiped off the flat surfaces. (This technique is from Tim Holtz's Creative Chemistry 101 course.)  Green metal was diecut for the foliage accenting the black and white flowers.  The sentiment is an old Dream Impressions stamp.

Wow...this tag is dynamic nice design and sentiment. Did you stamp the words individually? I might have to try that technique one of these days. Be well Carole
