Rubber Meets Metal

When I saw the Serene Silhouettes stamp set in the new catalog, I wanted it immediately.  I loved the shadowy nature images, but not for paper.  I wanted to stamp on some metal with those beauties!  This is a fairly new hobby to me, one that combines my creative left brain that is so fond of rubber stamps, and my inner chemist right brain, that loves a little bubble and burn!  

Basically, I stamp an image on a piece of copper or bronze using Staz-on ink.  When the metal is introduced to a chemical etchant (stuff they use to make circuit boards) the chemical erodes away the metal that is not protected by the layer of Staz-on ink.  Freakin cool, right?

There is no end to what you can do with rubber stamps...one of my newer club members (who dabbles in all kinds of crafts herself) refers to rubber stamping as the gateway drug... it leads to all kinds of other crafty addictions!!

I wouldn't leave you without a card sample!  Freshly Made Sketches caught my eye this week, thought I'd give their challenge a go using this great stamp set.  Have a great weekend!

I feel like I stepped in to an episode of The Big Bang Theory! Sounds like you are a scientist with all that talk of things I can't pronounce! But I love those metal pieces. The whole idea of it is totally cool! And I love the card too! The image showing through the circle is perfect with the the senitment ON the circle! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
