Any Old Iron

This week it's my turn to choose a theme at CD Sunday so I'm calling out for any old iron - altogether now......

"Any old iron? Any old iron? Any, any, any old iron? You look neat. Talk about a treat! You look so dapper from your napper to your feet. Dressed in style, brand-new tile, And your father's old green tie on. But I wouldn't give you tuppence for your old watch and chain, Old iron, old iron."

I've kept this one fairly simple as I didn't want to detract from the beautiful artwork featured on this CD by Debs. It was made using artwork by her very talented Mum, Tina Cottis.

I used an embossing folder behind the main image to give a watery feel.

My 'any old iron' is the dragonfly. I've had it absolutely ages, it is made of rusty tin from a company called Tinz. I covered it in glue and allowed it to go tacky and then used a scrap of foil over it which gives that oil on water look. I just added some pretty ribbon and gems in toning colours to finish.

Now it's your turn!

All you need to do is pop over to CD Sunday Challenge Blog where you will find all the details you need to enter the challenge. Just remember to let us know which CD you have used.

There will be lots of inspiration waiting for you at CD Sunday Challenge Blog from all my fellow teamies.

Enjoy (tea/coffee)

It is Margaret's turn to choose the theme and this time it is a photo that she took while on holiday last year that we take our inspiration from.

Isn't that a great image!

The team have had a lot of fun with this one so don't forget to visit CD Sunday and check it out. You will also find all the information you will need to enter the challenge.

Meanwhile here is my card:

All the elements on this card are from   Everyday in Moonbeam Meadow by Crafters' Companion       CD except the doily and ribbons that I have added to the centre of the buttons.
