Metal Mania with Smudgy Antics

The challenge this week on Smeared Ink's challenge blog, Smudgy Antics, is "Metal Mania".  Go to the challenge blog for details.

Here is my take on the challenge:

I used Smeared Ink's "cracked heart" image from the "Heart Wings" digi stamp set.  The image is colored with copic markers, trimmed, and mounted on actual metal tape, then trimmed again.  Because the backing is metal, I was able to bend the wings a bit for extra depth.  I took another strip of metal tape and embossed it with my cuttle bug and dripped random colors of alcohol ink onto it.  Once dry, I mounted the metal tape onto black cardstock and further mounted my creation on additional cardstock.
