Playing With Metal

Hi ya, I have been busy doing so many accounts, but at least in 4 weeks it will be over until next year lol.  Over this last week I have spent a lot of time just playing and one of those sessions I was messing around with Paperartsy copper metal that I bought ages ago.  I wanted to play in the current Paperartsy Challenge which is white space, but this is one thing that scares me so I decided to leave it alone.  Then Simon Says Monday Challenge was show us metal, I played a bit and came up with a card that covers both challenges.
No step by step today as it initially didn't start out as anything but play, but all the products I used can be seen at the bottom of the page :-)

I am hoping that this is enough white space.  I'm ultra happy that
I have done a male card as I need 2 in June.

To keep the metal puffed up I have stuck it down with glue gel which
I filled the indents full so when dry it won't flatten in an envelope.
Luckily this is a hand given card not to be sent in the post :-)

Right I shall be off, I need to start the Jacket Spuds or nobody will get any tea lol.  Thank you so much for taking the time to visit.

Happy Art :-)

The copper is gorgeous, my favourite metal! There is plenty, and certainly enough, white space of this card! Great idea to start with the male cards, the way I'm going I won't have any by the time Father's day comes around...
