Enchanted Evening ***SWIRLYDOOS***
When we asked our subscribers at Swirlydoos what new technique they wanted to learn...On the top of the list was Metal from Ten Seconds Studio. They all want to think outside the box...And they are a creative bunch!! So Krissy put together a fabulous add on Ten Seconds Studio Metal Technique Add On Kit. We are hooked!! It is so awesome. After seeing Bonnie's (LaBonita) metal embellies , I couldn't wait to give it a try. So I found a cheap plastic stencil I bought a few years ago and used it as a guide for my metal dragonfly. The roses were made from a Ten Seconds Studio Kabuka mold. I just cut them out individually as well as the leaves. And the strip was done using a mold TSS mold also. The metal is awesome and comes in some really cool colors, I used Pink for the roses and Appletini for the leaves. I burnished (sanded) it lightly as to leave most of the color...I did a tutorial at Swirlydoos using the kit. The photo is my son and daughter in law on their wedding day. Taken during their 1st dance.
