Heavy Metal

What an amazing week!
We have a record 19 Darers this week, including some talented crafters joining in for the very fist time - Thank You all so much for joining in and showing all your wonderful cards, we really do enjoy seeing your work, and we're sure that many others are inspired by seeing the range and variety of all these cards.
If you've not already done so, then remember you can visit them all via the Links List on the right of the screen.

Okay Everyone it's time to move on to another Dare and now it's Saffa's turn...
This weeks dare is entitled:
HEAVY METAL
..no I don't mean rock music! I would like you to make a card on any theme you like with the rule that it must include something metalic...thats all!You could use wire, charms, foil or even metallic pens.
So, plenty of room there for some fun and creativity. The Design Team have been clinking bits of metal all week and our cards are shown below. Now it's over to you to do your bit, we're here and waiting to see your "take" on the theme.
Anyone and Everyone is welcome to join in, wherever you live, whatever your style - the more, the merrier in fact! So please, come on in and spend a few happy minutes (or hours) crafting with the DCM

Kelly said...

Great dare! I had already done this card last week before I saw the dare so I hope it counts! I used black eyelets on black card so I don't think the pic shows it too well - the red ribbon is threaded through it. http://muffwaisstuff.blogspot.com/2007/01/more-cards.html

I've also been eyeing up my red christms coke tabs that I havve been saving so this dare may see a use made of them!

Susan said...

I am so impressed with the way everyone has made their cards for this dare - metal is a great way to go! I've put mine up on my blog.

Rachel said...
