Vintage and Metal

Well it's been a little while since I did any papercrafting, and I decided to throw myself back into it this evening. The current challenge over at the Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge blog is vintage, and the challenge over at the Paperplay Challenge blog is Metal. I have, somewhere, some vintage-looking metal thingies, so I thought I could use them and combine the two challenges. But, lol, of course I can't find them now :P

The first one is an ATC and it uses an image from Dezina World (who are also sponsoring the MCFC challenge) and they do some fab images and digital ephemera, do pop along and have a look. The flower is made from faux suede and has a fancy metal centre.
And the second piece is a card, which probably fits better into both challenges as it looks more vintage-y and also has a metal butterfly as well as the metal flower centre. The image of the dog is from Art Freebies, which is another great site to visit, and June puts up all sort of vintage images there.
