Lots To Do - Marvelous Metal

First of all my apologies for my naff photograph, but I was fighting the light, I have no photographic skills, and it's just started to snow again! The challenge on Lot's to Do this week is metal, so I thought I would do an ATC.Now the only metal I have is 3 sheets that I bought 3 years ago when I was very new to crafting and had to have EVERYTHING (ok that hasn't changed) and 3 years later is still sat in the bag that I brought it home in (mm I'm starting to see a pattern emerging here) lol. Anyway... the copper sheet came out of the bag today!! I Cuttlebugged a frame, and it looked all shiny and new, so I wacked it with a hammer a few times, then painted with copper acrylic dabber and sprinkled with verdigris embossing powder. A quick blast with the heat gun and the paint bubbled nicely, and it all looked a bit older and wiser.
The chain is from Tim Holtz , and the background paper is K&Co.
I really enjoyed this challenge, and the metal said it enjoyed coming out of the drawer.
Thanks for looking xx
