Sunday Stampers Challenge 99--100!

Today's post is my offering for Sunday Stampers combined 99th and 100th week challenge. The theme is Free Bird meaning you are free too choose your own theme, although, you may include a bird if you wish.

I actually got to use my new Ten Second Studios mold with time and clockworks on it. You need to go check them out if you enjoy working with metal---or if you just like crazy and crafty individuals--ha!! Anyway, I embossed copper metal w/the mold and then aged it by painting it w/black acrylic paint and wiping it mostly off before it dried. Aged text from old dictionary w/Vintage Photo Distress Inkpad to use as a background. Harlequin stamp from Stampers Anonymous by Tim Holtz. Filmstrip ribbon also by Tim Holtz as well as the Love key---from his Idea-ology line. Ran copper wire thru my crimper and used as accent on one side of the filmstrip attached w/brads. Card base also inked w/distress inks.

So excited to actually get to enter a challenge on Sunday Stampers. I so admire all of Hels work. You seriously need to go check out her blog--- Ink on My Fingers---you will be so happy to discover her as well!
