Something new for me





I've been wanting to have a go at using Ten Second Studio metal products for quite a while and when I saw Leandra French from PaperArtsy demonstrating last week at Ally Pally that was it I was hooked!  This was my first attempt which I feel quite pleased with, but I have also booked myself in on a one day Work shop at the Craft Barn in a few weeks time so that I really know what I'm doing!  This card was for my Dad - feel that  the metalwork just lends itself to male cards, which I always struggle with.

Basic Grey papers, Ten Second Studio Copper Metal, PaperArtsy Stamps, QuickKutz flourish die cut, K&Co sentiment.

Talking of the Craft Barn, take a look at the wonderful Candy they're offering to celebrate the first anniversary of their website!



This is along with a whole week of celebrations so go and have a peek!!
Signature final

Hi Julie, this is absolutely stunning - brilliant first attempt. (Mine led to one badly cut finger - gave up after that lol).
Great papers and I bet Dad loved it.
