Metal with Make My Monday

I am back home but this post is still scheduled to appear as I know there will be lots of laundry and cleaning to catch up on and work beckons tomorrow.....I am really not sure if holidays are a good thing.  I certainly get out of the habit of work very quickly.

It is good to be home though and have a little cuddle with our new be honest I have missed the three big babies who still live with me too ...but do not tell them please lol!  Anyway back to the matter in hand:-

Make My Monday is working with metal this week - this is perfect for the Steampunk theme.  You can use a brad, eyelet - anything you fancy really.  I have made an 8x8 (a favourite size for me at the moment) and used the Crafty Individuals steampunk butterfly stamp as my focal image.

Layers of Kaisercraft paper have been used along with more Graphic 45 clocks.  The edges of the paper have been distressed and edged with black.  I then stamped the butterfly and clock face from the CI stamp again using Stazon ink onto copper metal sheet and layered onto the card.

I have also used brads twisted with some copper wire in the top left corner.

My cuttlebugged background and flower is "faux" metal, it is mirri card which I have coloured with a mixture of Stazon and alcohol inks and then embossed using a Cuttlebug folder - the flower was cut using layers of  a  Marianne Design Ribbon Flower LR0108 die 

Hope you manage to play along this week and I am looking forward to catching up with your blogs (can anyone tell me why blogger keeps telling me that I am not authorised to leave comments please?).....Suzanne ~x~

A gorgeous creation Suz. I love the butterfly stamp and colouring and your faux metal looks fabulous too.
Seems like we're all improvising too.
Hope the dreaded h word doesn't take too long!
Hugs, Fliss xx
