Metal Babe!

A lot of cards I spot are so pretty, yet relatively simple and speak volumes, so I wanted to give it a try myself. 

I used Kenny K's Metal babe, and coloured her in with promarkers to match the papers. 


I took myself out of my comfort zone by using s smaller rectangle card blank instead of my usual square one, and added a sentiment inked directly onto the papers! 

Image - Kenny K Metal Babe
Papers - MME Lime Twist
Sentiment - PTI (A set I bought from Kerry!) 
Tools - Nesties & EK Success punch.

The only think I would do differently would be to mount the spotty paper onto a solid colour next time, but I was trying to use up some scraps and I have no more of the magenta that I used on the circle having used it all on Maddisons birthday card! Grr! oh well practice makes perfect!
