Copper ATC

I stamped on copper for this one! I used a newspaper clipping background from Inkastamps

and pounded the heck out of it with a ball peen hammer after I mounted the copper piece to matboard :) I applied the eyelets and wire, then the copper wings and keyhole that I applied copper paint to! I love how this came out! Too bad I just could NOT get a good scan.

My house now reeks of rotten eggs from the Liver of Sulphur! My kids are walking around with their noses covered!LOL But it was alllllll worth it! Going to be doing more copper stuff too-but I am on my way out the door! Had to share though :)

Love this copper-thing you did! How did you make the wings? Did you use a punch?
