Corrosive Challenge #196 - Show Us Your Metal

Good morning crafters!  I am SO grateful it's almost April, and that March seems to be following along with coming in like a Lion and going out like a Lamb.  Phew.  I am very ready for some warmer weather, and flowers, and green grass.  At least there is a fun new challenge at The Corrosive Challenge to keep us busy.  We have a fabulous returning sponsor for this one:

Teri has lots of lovely new images for spring, as well as some deviously dark images.  She has generously offered 4 digis to the winner of our new challenge.  Which brings us to our challenge:  Show us your metal!  No, you don't need to have won any awards, or enjoy some hard core rock - just create a project incorporating metal embellishments and/or hardware.

I was lucky enough to be able to work with Quiet Contemplation she is so pretty!  I love all things asian-inspired. 
I had the idea to paper piece her robe because I knew I had lots of papers that would fit the bill...not the easiest choice in the long run, but it did come out well after some seriously intricate cutting!  The rest is colored with Copics.  I made a stick pin for her hair using beads from Walmart, and the charm was from Michaels.  All the other embellies are from stash.  My metal accents are the coin brads, corners and the charm.

I hope to see some heavy metal over at The Corrosive Challenge.  Enter for your chance at the awesome prize of 4 digis from the Delicious Doodles shop.  

Thanks for stopping by!
