Perfect for this challenge!

Here is my DT make for the challenge. Originally I had decided to use some pins, but then I was overwhelmed by this urge to try stamping on sheet metal. I’ve been meaning to try stamping on metal so this challenge was just the perfect opportunity to give it a go!

The Stove / Oven is one of the wonderful Alota background stamps – I love them, they are just fabulous! Another of my favourite stamps (yeah, I know, I have lots of favourite stamps!) is the Belles and Whistles Tania Baking which Elaine has on special offer over at Quixotic Paperie.

So two favourite stamps have been matched with one of my favourite paper packs at the moment which is the Material Girl from Cosmic Cricket and the little bow was made with my Bow Easy Template.

So get out your metal bits and pieces folks.

Can’t wait to see what you do with them.

Ink – Archival black

Colouring – Copic pens; PrismaColor pencils

Papers – Material Girl from Cosmic Cricket
