ATCs: Textured with Metallic Element

One of the problems with scans (and photographs too) is that they often don't show textures and metallic elements well - so a swap with a theme of Textured with Metallic is bound to show up poorly. Still, these cards were fun to make, using a heavily textured crumpled paper as a background with some shiny paper folded and layered at the top. I then added a textured ribbon, which is copper in colour - think it's actually plastic, rather than being foil... And finally, for the metallic element I used some very thin bits of metal, with designs punched into them. I used stitch to hold all the elements down. Funky!

They show up better than I thought they would. Nice work.
