Silhouette Challenges #35 - Mirror mirror on the wall!

Hello my crafty friends,

Welcome to my March (Challenge 35) DT post for Silhouette Challenges.

Today I'm sharing something that I haven't worked on for a while and decided to try again. Last time I etched it was over a year ago (a glass vase) and my etching cream has been stored away since then.

I decided to test it out so I used my surname initial (D) and the year that hubby and I got married (I still look at it and wonder if I got the correct year ... lol)

I used a stencil (cut out of vinyl from my local sign store), a mirror, a sponge brush and some etching cream for this project.

I wish I'd taken a photo of the before and during so you could see the process ... I've made a note to self to try remember for next time :-).

It is so hard trying to photograph a mirror so I'm sharing a few different views so you can get an idea of what it looks like with and without a reflection, so my cell phone and my hubby's golf clubs are meant to be in the pictures ;-).

It turned out quite nice except for a bit of unevenness on the vertical bit of the D ... I guess practice makes perfect so I've lots of practicing ahead of me...lol! It definitely looks better in person.

Thank you for visiting today!
Happy Crafting!
