Ten Seconds Studio

I bought 2 sheets of the Ten Seconds Studio metal about 2 or 3 years ago :O lol but have only just got round to using it. I didn't get any tools at the time as I do have a little electric tooly thing which I thought I'd use. I did however get DD to buy me one set of tools last Christmas. I bought 4 little photo tins from QVC a while ago and decided to decorate one for a friend - I won't tell you how long ago her birthday was haha. I did consider using paper but decided on alcohol inks and while it was quite nice I kept veering between using it and not using it but doing something else. Anyway after watching a vid on Youtube about using foil - just bog standard cooking foil - it prompted me to use the Ten Seconds metal sheet. I used some textured wallpaper on top of the photo tin and put the metal sheet on top. I've used a flower from one piece of wallpaper and the squares from another. I used Wild Plum alcohol ink on the flower and Stream on the leaves and the squares. I coloured the rest of the tin with Pitch Black but didn't like it so took it off but left a little bit round the edges of the other bits. I started to use the little decorative wheel tool to embellish the flat bits but as it was on a hard surface it didn't work very well so I just used an embossing tool to draw little circles. ;)
