Lots of metal.

I'm having fun with metal this week.
This frame from LB crafts was just naked wood a couple of hours ago.
I made a template of the top of the frame by placing a piece of paper over the top and rubbing a crayon over it to get the outline, this I transfered to the metal. The top was done seperately.
All the decoration was done before I cut it out. The swirly patern is a stamp which I then traced over with the pointy refining tool (TSS), on the edges I used a wheel (TSS). This was then sanded apart from the top part which I hand swirled and left unsanded
The edges I painted with black gesso.
The back was then covered with Humungo tape and cut out then adhered to the frame. I made sure the edges of the metal were really stuck down well.
Then I coloured some embelishments with black Stazon and adhered them with glossy accents.
