Engraving Art: Puppy and Kitten

This is my entry for this week's Saturday Paper Ala Mode over at The Outlawz.

Believe it or not, this is PAPER. My friend Penny sent this little craft kit to me, and I had the best time creating it. It is called engraving art, but it is basically scratch art. Each piece of paper has a color behind the top black layer, and you scratch the image using a little scratch tool that comes with it. The image is printed very lightly on top and you scratch it off. This one was copper colored under the image. I think it took me about 2 or 3 hours to complete it. It was so much fun. I also scratched a border around the image, and then placed it on black velvet paper and then framed it in this shadow box frame. It was extremely difficult taking the picture because of the reflection of the copper and the glass in the frame. It it so much prettier in real life. Thank you so much for looking.
