SOS 465: Full METAL Jacket

It's time for a brand new challenge at Shopping Our Stash, and you may already have guessed from the title that what we'd like to see are projects which incorporate metal or metallic embellies, papers, beads, embossing, etc. It just so happens that last week, when I was looking for something else*, I found this awesome set of ancient but unopened copper letters from We R Memorykeepers and thought, "AHA!"

It took a while longer to consider pairing said patina-ed beauties with my Waffle Flower Books and Coffee stamp set, but once I thought of it, the whole thing came together pretty quickly. Or rather, as quickly as anything which involves me COLORING multiple stamped creatures (...I'm kinda slow...) with Tombow Dualbrush Pens and accents of Prismacolor Pencil. I added a mat layer of Eyelet Outlet Copper Foil Washi Tape for good measure and confess I'm fairly proud of my not-quite A7 card!

I hope you'll visit SOS to see the fabulous inspiration from the rest of our amazing crew, then start planning what Metallic Masterpiece you'll link up with us!

*At my house, the most common time for finding previously undiscovered objects, is while looking for something else entirely; the specified thing very possibly not coming to light during the search, which might reveal 1-3 completely random objects which had been previously searched for, but not found. Is this just me, or is there a special corollary of Murphy's Law which covers missing items??


  1. Fab way to use those bold letters and I love your cute creatures peeking through. x

  2. Soon you will be a colouring wizard!! Super cute card, love how you used the letters, awesome job.

  3. Those copper letters are perfect for our challenge!! And the little critters really set them off!! Great inspiration for those who decide to play along with our "full metal jacket" challenge over at Shopping Our Stash.
