Bellarific Friday: Metal KETTO

Hi all,

Welcome to another Friday with the Bloggabella!  As we speak, I am at a cottage having a ton of fun with family and friends - makes for a great weekend!  But, I didn't forget about Bellarific Friday!

This week, Em challenged us to use metal on our card - this one was definitely a challenge!  Hmmmm, what to use?

Here's mine:

My card base is Sahara Sand CS, and the yummy striped papers are from SEI, with a black mat.  I punched the bottoms with the jumbo scallop punches from EK Success, and the strip across the middle is a Kraft piece, on a black mat, punched with an SU scallop punch.  I added some adhesive rhinestones to those scallops. 
That striped paper has gold metallic lines in it - it's totally yummy! 
For the square panel, I took a 3" square piece of Whisper White CS, covered it in Versamark ink, sprinkled gold embossing powder all over it, and melted the whole thing - did that twice.  So, it looks like a metallic gold square!  I thought it went well with the stripes, and there's my metal!  I matted that with a black square, then a white one.

I stamped Margarita KETTO onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink (shocker).  I coloured her with Copics, and cut her out to mount on the gold square.  I coloured all her stars in with a gold Krylon pen - so they are metallic too, but the light doesn't really show it.

Next week's challenge??? Paper Piercing!  This should be easy, so I want to see everyone playing along!  Don't get it confused with paper piecing - we want pieRcing with an "r".  Submit your card using any of the stamps sold at Stamping Bella to Emily ( by Thursday night - you will be entered to win some Bella Bucks, and your card will be published on the company blog!

Have a great weekend!  Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Wow...I'd say you WON the metal challenge this week girlie! Awesome job on that metallic background. I had to zoom into the picture to see what you made it from and then realized YOU did make it! So creative - love it! Wonderful layout too. Can I tell you I never noticed all the stars on this image before? I LOVE stars, how has this image escaped me? Know what's going in the shopping cart next month...
