More uses for Aluminum Tape

Ok, Ok, I know you're probably sick of seeing projects with Aluminum tape,
But I'm not the only one!  The Great and Mighty Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2012 September Tag
Is using this fab product.....  Well not this exact fab product, but the Ranger equivelent

So for me, I used some of his techniques on these pretty cards I made for a swap

The challenge over at Dilly Beans Challenge is to use black and white + 1
As I had to make multiple cards, I decided to make the same card in different colors.
The image is Wired Robot Framed and can be found here
How about some close ups??





I added the googlie eyes and a little glitter around the Hello but otherwise I kept it pretty
simple.  If you wanna know how to do the technique on the aluminum tape (sorry the pics don't do it justice)
Head on over to and he'll walk you through it!
Have a great Labor Day weekend!
