HOLES!!


This is for a hosted swap again on the DC Forum (Note to self: Must broaden horizons!!). This one is hosted by Sian, her swaps are always great. The rule for this one is that there must be a hole all the way through the ATC. I've called this 'The Vault'. Its a piece of copper (I originally did it in aluminium but it was a bit too thin and looked rubbish) i've embossed/debossed and eyeletted and bradded (words) to within an inch of its life. The 'vault' door opens so thats the required hole. A hinge added to the door and everything alcohol inked and its done. I had painted with acrylic to dull it down originally but it was horrible so it went along with the aluminium.
