A blog Named Hero – Metallic Challenge!

Hello everyone,

Welcome to A Blog Named Hero first challenge of the month.

Make a project with metallic element in it. It can be a full on metallic background or a tiny element on the card. It is up to you. All we ask is to use atleast one Hero Arts product on your project.

Here is my take on the challenge.

Life is beautiful card 1//

For my card, I have used Rain Dance stencil and sponged Gold Delicate pigment ink. While the ink was wet, I rubbed in some Perfect Pearls to add more iridescent metallic look. The picture does not justify how it looks in real. The metallic looks is just so beautiful on white background. I left the background to be the highlight by adding an elegant frame and a coloured sentiment from Hero Arts/Basic Grey Good Day stamp set. I added silver thread and silver metallic sequins to embellish.

Hope you can see the metallic look on the background on the closeup photo below.
