This month technique challenge is all metal. Check the details in the creative corner (http://www.stamp-shack.com/dynamics/).

I posted 2 cards in the gallery with sheets of metal run through the Cuttlebug. One uses a soda can and the other art sheet metal. I rec'd a question asking about the sharpness of the edges of the metal. In the past turned under the edges on tooled metal projects. But this time because I DID NOT want a lot shackies getting cut without warning:mad: I ran my fingers around the edges to test. No cuts although it looked sharp. Although I do recommend being cautious. The soda cans are so very thin they cut with old scissors! The one issue is taping the metal down...I would recommend red liner tape or your most sticky stuff!

Happy playing!...Jan

What a fun challenge, Jan. I think I have a piece of copper sheeting around here that I've been wanting to play with.

That's just MEAN!! LOL. I'm gonna have to try this 'cause it looks so darn cool. I don't have alcohol ink, stazon, sharpie pens or soufflé pens. I do have a black & red sharpie but, not quite what I wanted.

Here's the inside of the card, too.
