This week I discovered the Cuttlebug and my creative world has changed. When I visited CHA in Jan 2011 I watched demonstrators use different embossing and cutting machines on lightweight metal and grungeboard to great effect. Harry Wood had shown us some great photos of embossing on metal, and Margo Horowitz also had shared some discs she had embossed with the Cuttlebug and colorized with alcohol inks. These techniques aren't anything I personally discovered; they've been around for a bit and I just had not explored them yet. Now that I have, I'm hooked. Be sure to visit http://www.bsueboutiques.com and read Harry Wood's tutorials on torch fired patina and embossing with a pasta machine, Sizzix or Cuttlebug. You will find them under the PROJECT IDEAS link about half-way down the home page. Also, visit Harry's Etsy at Oscar Crow to see his finished pieces, which are reasonably priced. In this video I show you how to set up the Cuttlebug and get started quickly embossing paper, mica sheet and metal, along with a few colorizing tips with alcohol inks and torch patina on 30 ga. copper sheet.
