Anything but paper...

Hi everyone.
This prompt got the old head woken up to be sure! 
I discovered some time ago you could punch through thin metal with paper punches. I discovered a little flower I had cut out of copper sheet in my bag o' bits and I was off. I tried to verdigris the copper it was not happening so I used  'Heat it Up' Verdigris. I had a little lizard charm Which became almost invisible just how they like it I imagine.
Kind regards
Pat

    The camouflaged lizard is very effective, I almost expect him to suddenly move!

  11. Wow, this is one heck of a gorgeous tag. Fabulous choice of materials and colours and that little lizard really appeals to me because we get so many of them sunning themselves on the walls of the cottage in the summer.
