Vintage Metal (1-4)

Happy Wednesday!

New Year's Resolution #2 - Reuse!

Are you into metal?  I removed some bronze metal hearts from an old crafty sign and re-used one of them on today's project!

Stamps: Joy's Life (wintery puns)
Paper: Prima dp 
Ink: Memento for stamping, SU! ink for distressing
Other:  metal heart, Krylon glitter paint, 
vintage seam-binding (hand dyed & shimmer sprayed)

I cut my design paper into strips & distressed each one
before attaching it to my card base.

My ribbon was hand-dyed with Stampin' Up! ink & sprayed with my home-made bronze shimmer spray.

Have any of you used Krylon's Glitter Blast yet?  oH mY wOrD, I adore it!!!  I glitter blasted my heart a bit for fun!!

Thanks for stopping by!
