Heavy Metal ...

... and my first encounter with Ultra Thick Embossing powder (lol) and it is all for Susan's OLW challenge: Heavy Metal - use something metallic on a one-layer card. Your metallic element may be an embellishment, metallic embossing powder, metallic ink, or metallic paper.
Ok, guilty - it is not quite a one-layer card but after I positioned my embellishment it just looked dull so unfortuantely it had to be a bit of a two-layer card, sorry ... however, I used metallic embossing powder and some metallic glitter
The metallic element has been embossed 6 times. After it was cooled down I cracked the surface, filled the cracks with black embossing powder, heated it up and stamped into the hot embossed surface with one of my favourite Heindesign stamps which a had slightly inked with black Brilliance ink. I will definitely need to do some more practising because I burnt two cards and embossed my craft table - not quite sure how this happened ...... happy crafting, Petra.

Oh my goodness this is just spectacular. I recently bought some 6x6 sheets of metals, thinking I would make some fabulous elements, but my brain has been blank. I had no idea where to begin. Thanks a million for the inspiration.
