Metal Etching- Oh What fun!!!

I have been having so much fun with a new technique I just learned. Its Metal etching. Here are a few of the pieces I did. I used the new stamp from Oxford Impressions From the new Halloween plate. Shhh I plan on making special for Suzanne with it. But don't tell its a surprise!!!

This is one I did with the new stamp from Artistic Outpost
The Generations plate. Isnt it cool? I plan on making a jewelry piece with this one.

This is a close up of a piece I did with stamps from I Brake for Stamps

Here's the book I put together using the metal piece and I covered the book with tissue ,added alcohol inks ,and stamped images on tissue using powdered pearls. They don't show well in the picture but really pretty in real life. This is for a very special person I Know!

This book is beautiful Lynn! I like the raw paper look of the cover. (I'm not sure of the right term for it.) And the metal etching piece is lovely. Your work is very inspiring!
