The Stamping Chef "Metal" Challenge

The Stamping Chef has a new challenge for the next two (2) weeks called "Metal". You don't have to use an image from The Stamping Chef, but if you do, your entry qualifies as a double chance to win!!! The winner selected will win 3 digis of their choice, BUT, there is a TOP 3!!! Why don't you add your project to the linky for a chance to win. Its pretty easy peasy don't you think??? Check out the Design Team projects for inspiration including my project below: 

For my project, I decided to go with my "steampunk" attitude and chose to work with Steampunk Hat

Now, for the recipe:
  • card was cut using Recollections paper at 5 x 11 inches and then scored at 5.5-inches using Martha Stewart Score Board 
  • used corner punch on the lower left corner
  • aluminum foil was embossed with my Cuttlebug and inked (say tuned for tomorrow as I will have a tutorial on how to emboss aluminum!!)
  • Steampunk Hat was colored using my Spectrum Noir Markers with hi-lights using my Gelly Pens 
  • Pearl, Bronze-Toned Rounded Gear, and Bronze Toned Fancy Key Charm are from Miriam's Crafting Supplies
  • Sentiment is from Tiddly Inks Steampunk Sentiments Mega Pack
  • burgendy tulle was gathered and added to the hat for veil with a bow to attach the Bronze Toned Fancy Key Charm to the hat
God Bless and Thank you for stopping by today!!! Please take a moment to sign up for The Stamping Chef blog emails and at least try one of the her freebies she is currently offering!!!! You can also find her on Facebook!!!
