Haven't played with metal for a while so I thought I'd have a go and also JoAnne from Vintage Dragonfly had asked me to do a mini tutorial how to make the embelishment using the bottle cap....think shes putting it on her blog Tuesday. I used gold metal for the squished diamond panel and then used rust and pesto alchohol ink to add colour to the metal

The image of the car has been stamped with sepia nd the I used distress inks to add colour....the stamp is by Elusive images, and is from an A4 plate called Edwardian Men.After I had coloured the image I used distress crackle on the top for a more glazed effect. The word Journal is from Dark Room Door....Venetian collection which were the first set of stamps I brought.

The background was made by stamping the cog image from The Artistic Stamper then using clear embossing powder, I then distressed the background using tea dye and forest distress inks.

Papercutz....use something metal.
Stampin B......something old and something new (old....Journey stamp, new Car stamp).
Alphabet.....J for Journey.
Rainbow lady....its all new to me (made the embellishment)
Pollycraft......use new something (car stamp).

Thanks for taking a peek
and if you leave a comment I'd like to thank you
many thanks x
