Springtime Fairy ATC

  Hello Thursday and welcome AP blog followers!
  Time for my first post this month using our partner product-M-D Hobby&Craft -Aluminum Metal Sheets.


After cutting my sheet to size with tin snips,I painted the metal with DecoArt Americana Spa Blue acrylic paint and covered the edges with Washi tape.
 Next I  cut out a fairy and friend from AlteredPages collage sheet- Little Fairies-AP1554
 The graphic was fancy cut , then glued to black cardstock and the cutout again, leaving a bit of the black around the edges for dimension. Next I coated the fairy and friend with DecoArt DuraClear Gloss varnish.







My next step was to color my AlteredPages Flower Trim from green to a matching blue.

 
 
Time to audition my pieces

  My finished Springtime Fairy atc!
I love how the sun shines through the metal sheet and creates that neat design on the table!

Wow, love that metal background...will have to try it out. Of course I would want to use it as a stencil and also for printmaking because that's how my art brain thinks...

Whoo Hoo for that cool metal sheet. I was wondering if that product could be rusted.I agree with Linda it could also make a unique stencil. I'd like it with molding paste. See what you do to us Jackie? You have our creative minds spinning with ideas. Proof of a good post.

I'm liking the metal sheet, not seen it before. This could be very useful in all sorts of ways.
Loving the way you've used it to make the ATC, it's a great effect.
Your crafty friend, Angela x

The painted metal filigree makes such a wonderful background for this fabulous frolicsome pair (well done on the fussy-cutting - rather you than me!) - delicious!
