Messing about with metal - Experiment.3

I punched a 2" disc out of some thick copper which I have had for over 30 years, and had forgotten all about it until recently, when an article on Time for Crafting reminded me, so I had a rummage and found it.

I ran it through my Wizard machine with an embossing plate, and coloured it with alcohol inks. I think that I might hammer it a bit to make the butterfly's body. I think it would look better

Love your metal experiments Lottie. This looks like a piece of jewellery it's beautiful.
Your atc is also just lovely. That image is so beautiful and your shading is perfect.

Hope you are not working too hard lately ... you seem to have boundless energy
