Metal Zen Bookmark
Here is a bookmark a made for a bookmark challenge. It is made of metal. I love embossing metal for craft projects, but have never purchased the tools to do so. I simply use an old ball point pen. Rubbing the metal with waxed paper helps my pen slide smoothly.
After the piece was completely embossed and my fingers almost entirely useless, I heated it with my heat gun to make the colors emerge. It has lovely shades of copper, red, orange, silver and blue. Hard to see in the pics.
