Flourishes Heavy Metal Challenge

Today I am sharing a card I made for the Flourishes Heavy Metal Challenge.

I won the stamp set, Tokens of Affection and had yet to ink it up so I thought why not do so now. I've been doing a lot of fall related cards lately so it was a nice change of pace to do something different.

Here is my card:

I embossed the little "love machine" robot with VersaMark ink and Detail Silver Embossing Powder. She was colored with Copic Markers (Y21, YR24, R59 and BG23)I added some sparkle to the hearts with a Lipstick Spica Glitter pen.
I masked the image and sponged on some Cool Caribbean ink, added some Prima flowers and a heart gem then mounted it on Black card stock.

The sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I used Brushed Silver Card stock and Silver Cording along with some Pewter Heart to complete the look of Metal on my card.

The papers are from My Minds Eye - Stella & Rose pattern.
Card Base is Bermuda Bay.

I'll be saving this one back to give to hubby come next Valentine's Day. Nothing like being prepared huh!
