Marvellous Metallics

Metallics are great to work with, but a real pain to photograph to get the shimmer right! I either get too much shine or not enough! I made this ATC for This Thurs challenge of metallics using stamp 'n' bond and gold foil for the butterflies, writing in gold ink and then finishing the edges with bronze chalk eye. I will endeavour to get a better image in daylight!

Love this one too Sally - I agree it's a opain to get the colours to show up whether it's a scan or photograph - I have tried both ways and metallics really don't like bright lights at all.......but your ATC is just gorgeous, love the butterflies.
