Spellbinders altered metal 'Christmas 'bauble'

I wanted my Christmas tree to look more modern this year, that isn't to say I don't want traditional too but I need to change the colours I usually choose.  I don't have enough decorations in my chosen theme of blues, copper and cream so am attempting to make some.  I initially attempted to make this decoration from craft metal which has a copper colour to one side but it was very difficult to get the three sides to stick so for this, version 2 I stuck metal tape to quite thick kraft card and die cut three pieces using a spellbinders die.  I then coloured the metal with alcohol inks and copper adirondack paint dabber.  Added a piece of wire (stolen from a wine bottle) and here is the first of hopefully many.

One of the hardest parts has been photographing such a three dimentional object in a not very light house but here goes.
