Show Some Metal !!

Well girls and boys you are going to have fun with this one !!
Sunday again and its time for our next weekly challenge at The Crafty Pad.
Our teamie Helen got to choose this week's theme for challenge

#180 "Show Some Metal"

You could be inspired by the Olympics which are in full swing by using the colours of the medals, gold, silver and bronze.  Or any other colours !!  We just want to see some metal on your fab creations be it wire, beads, brads, charms etc !!

Our lovely sponsor this week is
 With 3 free digi's
Our very lovely second sponor is
With 3 single free digi's !!

So it's Team A's turn to get you inspied which icludes me.  The girls have some wonderful projects to show !!
 Now it's amazing what you can do with a few Coke cans.....
  I chose to play with
 "Butterflies with Verse and Borders" and as you can see decided to go for the FULL metal look !!
The flowers have been die cut from the Coke can, embossed and then painted bronze and glittered with bronze stickles. The background is made from strips of the can which I have also embossed and left silver. The butterflies have been printed on card and then painted and glittered in the same bronze colour.

Now you really have to see what the other teamies have been upto so pop over to The Crafty Pad and check them out !!  We also have a new Team member "Tina" who is starting this week, so please say hello as well to her !!
