When I went to those classes taught by Linda Cain over in Davenport I bought some of the Ten Seconds Studio metal tools and metal but I hadn't yet used any of it.. until now. The background of this atc is metal.... the pearl colored metal was embossed using 2 of their molds, and then I put some alcohol inks on it for a deeper color, and sanded the high spots... and mounted it to a piece of chipboard. Stamped the letters (Studio G) on the paper leaves. The collage image girl is from Quietfire Design and I added some spiced marmalade Distress ink, layered it onto black cardstock and cut a narrow border. "beauty" is from a sheet of words a friend gave me (Thanks Tea!!). Used a black Sharpie marker to color the sides of the chipboard up onto to the metal just a little bit.
