Metal Madness

These are for a swap hosted by Sam on the UK Stampers forum on the theme of metal/metallic. For the top one, I cut the heart out of the bottom of a disposable aluminium tray, alcohol inked it and stamped it and then alcohol inked some aluminium duct tape in the same colours. I painted the background in silver acrylic and stamped it, then stuck the ADT around the edges adn attached the heat usign silver brads.
For the middle one, I cut the ATC from the same aluminium tray, alcohol inked it, stamped the image in the middle and then embossed freehand around the edges of the image using a fine embossing tool.
For the last one, I created the background using tissue paper and copper acrylic paint which I heated with my heat gun until it bubbled. Then I stamoped it and rubbed over it with baclk Stazon ink to distress it and added some creased up copper mesh at the bottom I than alcohol inked a piece of aluminium from the bottom of a pie tin (I didn't have any copper so it was the next best thing), stamped the image onto it, added some distress embossing powder around the edges and attached it with brads.
