Metallic Madness?

The first Monday of the month means time for the start of the final Path of Positivity challenge this year and the end of our year of colour. This month we have the optional theme of Gold, Silver and Other Metallics.

Materials used:
Fred She Said – Lovely as a Leaf Digital Set (From the Sparkle N Sprinkle Shop)
X-Press It card
gold mirri card
7×5 in card blank
aluminium drink can
Tonic Studios Autumn Leaves die set
stitched rectangle die
metalic pens
Copic pens:
leaves – R24, YR15, G24, G94, G99, W5, W7
shadow – W0, W1, W3
metal leaf – Y15, YR15, YR16, YR18, R24, G94, E29, E49

The leaf embellishment is die cut from an aluminium drink can and coloured with Copics.

The open lettering is coloured with metallic pens.

The challenge is open until the end of the month so you have plenty of time to get an entry in. Remember the theme is optional but with all the Christmas sparkle around I am sure there will be some project you will be able to use.

This month Sparkle N Sprinkle are our very generous sponsors, very apt considering the theme of the challenge!  The prizes on offer are: 

    • $15.00 worth of digital images from Sparkle N Sprinkle for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch (based on those projects who have followed the theme).
    • $15.00 worth of  digital images from Sparkle N Sprinkle for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
    • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight. 

You can find all the details and the link up on the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog.

I hope you will join us on our journey down the Path of Positivity this month. Thank you for dropping in. Take care.


About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

  1. You really got the metallics in here! Beautiful fall card with the gorgeous, rustic colors. I had no idea you could color pop cans with Copics; great technique!
