Use Metal with Smudgy Antics

Hi All and Welcome to another fortnight challenge with Smudgy Antics :)

The theme for this challenge is to use METAL in your creation. I played safe and made a broach, but we would really love it if you use metal from an actual hardware store, scrap metal, found metal objects, recycled soup cans and aluminium pop/soda/fizzy drink cans, etc.

My Broach

Close up of the image

The cameo frame I bought in Hobbycraft when they were selling them off at 99p, so I've had it in my stash for quite a while now. The tassel is an earring I bought from a charity shop (Thanks BD). The image is a Digi stamp from the Specimen Jar set by Smeared Ink She has been coloured with promarkers blue's, grey's and black.

I would like to enter this broach into the following challenge(s)
