Je Reve en Francaise

I took another spin over to the ABC Challenge site and this week the theme is

M is for Metallic

so you just know I had to play with this one. To me metallic is anything that shimmers like sparkeling h2o's and glitter. But I decided to challenge myself a bit more than just playing with my regular toys.

Alas, the photo of the card plain sucks. All the colored paper bits are copper and the Eiffel tower is copper so is the glitter around the woman's face. The words on the black are the closest embossing powder that I had to copper and the phrase "Je Reve en Francaise" (I dream in French) was originally red but I went over it with a black permanent marker. When you look at it with the naked eye you can't see the red but the scanner sure did pick it up. As a finishing touch I added some black glitter around the edge of the copper card.

I hope you enjoy and I wish I knew how to make a purtier picture of this card.

I really love this ATC. I think all the layering really adds to the metalic efect and it looks really touchy-feely.
