Tuesday Throwdown #232: Use Metal

Happy Tuesday, friends! Hope you are ready for another week of crafting fun with the Tuesday Throwdown gang. Our challenge theme this week is Use Metal. All you have to do is incorporate some metal on your project - such as metal embellishments, charms or ink.  Our sponsor is Sassy Studio Designs but you can use any stamps from your stash as long as you follow the theme.

I made a masculine birthday card with this image of Handy Sassy, so generously provided by our sponsor. This is a simple card, with the sexy lady taking centre stage. The Woodware square metal brads echo the embossed checkered background. The dark blue and grey are strong and masculine colours. I heat embossed the greeting in silver - more metal.

I coloured Handy Sassy with Graph'It Markers and gave her outfit and hardhat a little sparkle with the Wink of Stella Clear pen.
