My ASBA ATC Swap



So the nicks is hosting a swap where we can not use the standard



materials for our ATC background and also we have to have an 'altered item' as the main focus. So seeings as i am into the soldering anything that doesnt move at the moment




I just so happened to have some metal and solder, and by chance a can of Red bull, some watch parts, clay and some glass and managed to come up with these three cards. One the hostess WILL have to keep as host 'gift' - but some how i think she may palm it off onto some other unsuspecting soul. And the other two she will find some poor soul to send them to and they will have to pretend to like them, hey ho i like them and i've done my bit for recycling I suppose LOL
The top card is honestly the correct size, the 'Red Bull' crown flips down, the face has been stamped onto a clear acrylic sheet and then soldered onto embossed and aged metal.

Mmmmm I picked one at long last, after looking at them for a week... well Matt picked it.... cos i felt bad about keeping the best one (IMHO).... guilt is bad for you so I chose the one with a slide on it......
Thank you SSO!!
