Lynn Stevens said...

awesome, how did you do the edges of the metal?

Amy said...

WOW, this is so AMAZING!! What a cool piece to hang in your home..you are very talented lady

Kimmie said...

Thank you!

Lynn - I used an embossing stylus and a foam pad underneath. It's pretty easy if you have thin metal to work with. Check out my bloglist and go see Karen Cole's Blog "Artsortments" for some truly amazing metalwork.
