Silhouette Sunday Revisted --- Etching

I LOVE etching on glass and the Cameo makes this so easy.  Below is a post I did last year (or has it been longer...??).  Since fall is officially here and I just pulled this plate out of my autumn decorations bin I thought it good enough for another visit.  I hope you agree.

 I found this adorable apple plate at the local second hand store and thought it would be perfect for a little fall etching project. Cutting stencils is easy peasy with the Silhouette.  The only real 'trick' is to make sure you leave enough of a border so the etching cream doesn't get on any part of the glass that you do not want etched.  The leaf in the upper left corner was an after thought because I wasn't paying enough attention and a bit of the cream got up there where I didn't want it.  Not really a problem because I just cut another stencil and etched that part, but if you are working on something that wouldn't lend itself to any additions, then you must be careful.  
I am making a note to myself to check back with the thrift store tomorrow and get the other three plates they had.  *I did check back, and they still had those plates.  I just haven't gotten around to doing anything with them.*    I hope you have a fabulous week and I thank you for stopping by.
Hugs, Shawna
