Hubby bought me quite a few Ten Second Studio tools quite a few years back and although I've dabbled every now and again, I've never actually made anything.... til now!!!
The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp & Show is... Anything Goes - perfect for a metal play :O)
So armed with a piece of A3 hardboard (just love this stuff) , I cut this down to a rectangle measuring 11 x 8.5", diecut 2 Sizzix wings (fave die at the mo), some hardboard alphabets and stuck these down onto it. The metal tape was cut into varying sizes and stuck randomly all over the letters, wings and background making sure they overlapped each other. Then I added some thin strips of copper tape. I used some TSS tools to engrave into the lettering and to define the shapes. I then brushed black acrylic paint all over, let it dry and then wiped the majority of it off with a baby wipe leaving behind black paint in all the grooves and little crevices. I then added some alcohol inked metal butterflies, alpha lettering covered in Glossy Accents and here it is.... ARTFUL wings - my blog name :O)
Think I will hang this on my craft room door :O)
Thanks for looking
