Distressed, Metal, Winter Wonderland

Hilda is running a 4" x 4" wall hanger swap at Lots to do forum these are my swaps.

3 fat book squares firstly painted with Gesso. Walnut hollow metal sheet embossed on a fiskers texture plate, a 4" square cut out and divided on the diagonal stuck to fbp a strip added to the top of the third square. Viva Terra Smeared on and dried with hot air (it bubbles) Viva Ferro smeared on smoothly and stamed into. Sprayed with Glimmer mist 'Frozen Lake' maybe my new fav colour and 'Marshmallow' Trees stamped on card cut out and made to stick to image. Main images stamped onto metal and embossed. Alcohol inks used on embossed main image, Viva precious metal colour add to higlights of the assembled pages. Ribbon hangers stapled on! Several hours of fun and inky fingers.

Challenges this week that these hopefully comply with are:
Lots to do distressed (by the end the card was crying for mercy)
