MFP sketch

Mark's Finest Paper-Speedy Fox challenge today was a sketch.  I have been stamping on Soda cans and coloring them with copics, you can  also use bic permanent markers.  On this particular one, I decided to reverse the dry embossing to give it a little different look.  I had never used an embossing folder on the soda can until this one.  I kind of like the way it turned  out.   When using a soda can on your card, be sure and get the sharp edges glued down.   This technique is not suitable on cards for children and use caution when putting them on adult cards.   The cutting of the soda can will not dull your scissors or punches, it actually sharpens them.    Some punches hang up when punching a soda can.   Nestie's also work for cutting the metal.   The barn stamp is from Mark's finest Paper, it is from the "Trip to Lancaster" set.

Thanks so much for stopping by again.
