Basilodes pepita

Hello.  Welcome.  PaperArtsy have a metallics challenge.  I have tried freehand embossing on metal before without too much success, but, emboldened by Linda's tutorial, I thought I'd have another go.  

I cut the moth from a gold metal sheet using a PaperArtsy moth die and added detail using some ball tools.  Then I used Whimsy FaDoodles stamps, that I was lucky to win in a giveaway from Mrs A.  Thanks Mrs A.  These are really cool and a great help for those of us with attention deficit LOL!  Lots of different styles and sizes of lines and then some little cuties to fill in the gaps.  In keeping with the metallic theme I went for gold embossing.  Sentiment by Unity.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
