It's Pile It On week!




I had so much fun making this card. YES, it's metal tape again! This time I place the word "peace" in thickers on the chipboard before I covered the whole thing in the metal tape. Then using the end of a paintbrush (or large stylus) I molded the tape around the letters. Using Alcohol inks I covered the tape in reds and greens. After the ink dried, I sanded the letters to remove the ink from them. The most fun was adding Diamond Dust and vintage tinsel to the "snowflakes".

Challenges I used:
