Metal embossing


Just a quick post today, as I haven't done one recently!!

I have been inspired, at the start of a new year, to create some projects with metal.
It is a product I love to use, but haven't actually done much with it recently.

The sample below uses metal tape and is useful when working with delicate stamps.
It can be stuck onto a piece of card then stamped onto with Staz-On ink. The ink needs to be dry before the design is traced over with an acrylic embossing tool. This gives a delicate embossed look.

This is a Hobby Art stamp
The metal tape can also be stuck over die cut shapes and then worked with the metal tools. Some interesting designs can be created this way, particularly for book covers.
Some more metal embossed cards to follow.
Bye for now.
