Last of Metal Tape Series


I did this one with an "echo" effect, thus calling it "Echoes of Time." This Twisted Papers collage sheet has great images!
Technique: put Metal tape onto a cardstock foundation. Lay image on card. Trace outline with a stylus. Remove image, and "echo" the traced line to the edges of the card. Apply liquid acrylic paint and rub off; apply and rub again until al the creases are filled with paint. Attach image to card.

This is awesome! First time I thought maybe metal tape could work with what I do...great idea, the concentric ripples - excellent tie in with echos, shadows, dreams, etc!!
