What’s New ATC…

February 15, 2010

The February ATC swap at CC Swaps is “What’s New?”  What are we doing new in our stamping/art?  I chose to experiment with stamping on metal tape after seeing Tim Holtz’s metal tape tag that was part of his 2009 Twelve Tags of Christmas.  I bought a roll of thin pliable metal at Dick Blick’s for the base.  Then I stamped the leaves on the tape in black ink.  I used a stylus to etch the lines of the image into the metal.  Then I turned the base over and etched between the lines on the image to get the puffy look.  The dots and squiggles between the leaves are freehand.  The leaves and background  with Copic markers.
