Yes like all challenge sites we have rules and guidelines. We hope you will read and follow them, we have Oyster Stamps as our sponsor, and of course, a winner and runner up will be chosen each month. We may also have the occasional guest designer.

Challenge 52 Heavy Metal - make Metal the main Focus

Oh dear, we really set you a poser with our last challenge - Puzzle Pieces.  We only had a few entries but what we had we loved so well done to you ladies for giving our challenge a go!

Here we are with a new challenge, we hope will inspire you to join us for the next fortnight.   Metal can be so versatile, coloured, die cut, embossed, and I bet you can think of other ways to use it. You could also alter a tin or embellishment, make a cover for a book or turn it into a picture.   All that we ask is that it is the main focus of your creation is "Metal" in some form or another.  What about using 'foil' as faux metal?

Yes, the Game pieces had me stumped. I waited for some inspiration and run out of time!
Metal, on the other hand, right up my street!
