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

Great use of the Coke can, it looks great with this embossed design, and great tone with the blue too.
Thanks for sharing with us.

What a brilliant idea to emboss a Coke Can. Love the simplicity of the design of this card - and using my favourite colour too. As soon as I saw the thumbnail I thought how appropriate 'flight' was for our closing challenge.
Thank you so much for joining us again at Artful Times.
Hugs, Neet xx
