Have you tried metal tooling yet? Here is a card I made featuring a lovely quote from Quietfire Design stamped in Vintage Sepia Versafine ink.
I ran some Dark Chocolate Metal from Ten Seconds Studio through my Cuttlebug using a Labels 4 die to create and emboss the frame. I also die cut and embossed a Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Doily Accents border from the same metal, then lightly sanded the highpoints to highlight.
The dressform was made by rubbing the label-shaped metal over a section of a Kabuka mold from Ten Seconds Studio, then refining, scratching with a brass brush, and burnishing. I used spackle to fill in the puffed up area so it would not dent with handling.
The ribbon was some cheap polyester or nylon ribbon from Wal-mart. It was originally a tan colour and I wanted it to be richer, in keeping with the metal. So I tried Walnut Distress Stain and was very pleased with how it dyed the ribbon with just a few swipes and dried almost instantly.
The only tricky bit with this card was finding some adhesive dots small enough to secure the pointy parts of the border at the vertical edges where it had been cut off. I ended up taking my smallest Zots and cutting them in thirds to tuck under the metal to hold it down.
Hope you enjoy your weekend and find some time to try something new, too!
