"Copper" Color Perceptions ATC Swap

The color is Copper in October for the Color Perceptions ATC Swap on the ArtVentures Group. The ATC is to be predominately copper and be how the color copper makes us feel. Copper makes me think of home, hearth & family; it warms my heart. I also have a daughter with beautiful copper colored hair, endearing me even more to this lovely color.
I started with a thin sheet of copper, die cut out heart shape. Used an embossing folder to emboss a design on the heart. Next, rubbed black acrylic paint over the heart, then rubbed most of it off.
 Ran a piece of copper colored metallic paper through a different embossing folder and layered it on black card stock. Adhered a piece of copper tape near the bottom and added a copper flower embellishment with a copper brad and added 2 larger copper brads. Added some copper colored beads and copper fibers to the heart and added it to the ATC.
