I've been "PLAYING" with a different medium! San Antonio Leadership had a demonstration booth with Linda Barnes making aluminum garden stakes that took my eye. From a big box hardware store I purchased 10"X10' Aluminum flashing (for roofing) and a roll end piece of copper wire ( a compromise because I needed 12 gauge hanging wire which they didn't have.)
I cut and spray painted a couple of 6" pieces of the flashing. I used Beautiful Butterflies Die and my Big Shot to cut two butterflies. Then I cut a Scallop Squares Duo Die with unpainted flashing. Works great and does not damage the steel rule dies! I ran all 3 pieces through embossing folders with my Big Shot to add texture. The Crop-A-Dile easily punched holes for hanging. I put a butterfly on BOTH sides of the Scallop Square then added a Crystal Bauble for BLING!
What do you think? I love a little BLING in my garden and plan to make other designs!! The Big Shot is SOOOO versatile!
