Something new...

A recent session at Scrapbook Cupboard in Bridgewater resulted in the creation of this metal sampler. Working with metal is relatively new for me, though I have tried it once or twice before, but not to this extent. With each sample we learned a new technique for altering the sheet of metal - embossing, debossing, antiquing, etc. We used a variety of tools, molds, paints and inks to achieve the various effects. My favorite sample is #4 (middle row, first column). To better view the image, click on it to bring up an enlarged photo.
I've also been working on ATCs for recent & upcoming swaps, which I will share as soon as I get them scanned.
