Aluminum Can ACEO/ATC

Heidi Borchers shared some ideas using aluminum cans on She cut the can with a pair of scissors, how easy peasy is that!?  So I started collecting cans. I washed  and dried them and then I cut the cans just like Heidi  said to do.  I put the cut pieces in their own special box.
In the chat room on cool2craft someone said you can use a punch!!!!   : 0
I got out my butterfly punch and started punching out butterflies!! It was cool! I had colorful butterflies on my craft table!
I used my Texture Boutique and started embossing small square pieces, then big pieces and THEN  I got out my alcohol inks... oh my I was on a roll.. What fun!
I made an ATC for a swap group that is hosted by Lisa Fulmer on!/LisaLizaLou

Then I made an ACEO and listed it on my Etsy
I am liking this aluminum..............

I love the little silver butterflys on the ATC. I have punched red, white, & blue pepsi cans for July 4th cards (stars). I haven't tried embossing metal tho. thanks for reminding me to use this valuable (and free) material.
