Technique Tuesday {04.19.11}

For today's TECHNIQUE TUESDAY, we are going to play with METAL! In the store, we carry TEN SECONDS STUDIO products. From metal sheets and tools to embossing molds of all sizes- we have everything you need to create amazing projects and pages with Metal!

There are soooo many cool things you can do with METAL to enhance your paper crafting projects. For a TON of tutorial videos, check out the video page on the TEN SECONDS site HERE
I wanted to share a really quick tutorial to give you an idea of how you can use metal on your pages or cards.

To create a pretty square that makes a fun embellishment, I took a square mold and a sheet of metal. Using a TSS paper stump, I simply embossed the pattern by hand.

Once my design was embossed, I used a TSS Burnishing Block to sand the metal so the design would come through.

This is what my square looks like once it's cut out and ready to be used:

On this page below, I used a border mold to create a strip to use down the side using the same techniques as above.

Here's a close up:
It's an easy and fun way to add a cool touch to your projects!

So stop by the store this week and take advantage of 45% off all Ten Seconds Studio products.
