Heavy Metal Shrooms

Hello.  Welcome.  A new challenge at Rubber Dance and it's the colours dark red, lime green and violet and/or the theme of Metal.  I decided to stamp and emboss on a piece of gold metal. 

I used Rubber Dance Funny Fungi and La Mappe stamps

I stamped La Mappe and embossed with gold powder then stamped the mushrooms and embossed with black powder.  They were a few gaps so I went over them with a black Promarker.  Then I coloured the mushrooms with Promarkers.  Darker colours worked best.  

I placed the metal panel on an old mouse mat and used a stylus to pattern the border with dots and spirals.  I mounted the metal panel on a bronze card base.

The Rubber Dance challenge runs until the end of the month. You can use the colours and/or use metal.  Don't forget if you are shopping at Rubber Dance you can get free worldwide shipping with my code GTFreeShip when you spend over €15!   
Also, I have extended the linky for my bunny hop and Rubber Dance is one of my fabtastic sponsors so don't forget to check out my bunny hop posts and link up for your chance to win.  Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
