Bah Humbug Challenge 11 - Metallic

This weeks wonderful challenge over at Bah Humbug  is 'Metallic' And boy the DT and Guest designers did not disappoint, truly stunning designs. I have made two cards this week, I was mooching around the wonderful challenge entries and was interested to read of one; where to dull down the metal 'Gesso' was used. I have made another Aperture card, this is the fab. thing about challenges, its gets you using techniques you havn't yet tried or not used in ages, I rarely made cards using apertures but last weeks challenge over at Bah Humbug has made me a little more confident in having a go more with them. Metal was used with the 'winter' embossing folder as well as the snowflake and miniture star die cuts. Once I had completed my card I had remembered I have quite a new Sizzix 'cut n' emboss' die of which I was also keen to use, so I decided I would make another card. The die cuts and embosses the metal beaitufully. I have added subtle colour using Adirondacks ink pads, cranberry and ginger and promarker pen was used to colour the deers nose and collar.
Both cards tie in beautifully with Hazel's challenge 12, 'Seasonal Silver' over at CHNC
