I love to use bits on my cards especially if they are free or from used objects. The embossed steampunkish background is made from a Diet coke can, which I cleaned and flattened and stuck on a bit of cardboard packaging which had be painted with gesso and sprayed.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Less is more - use metal
left of center- recycling
Artful times - anything goes, sadly the last challenge
