this is my first attempt at etching and I am almost embarrassed to post them but I think they turned out pretty well.  I think I am most happy with the fact that the "K" font was created myself while cutting since my drawn out templates were striking out!

Thanks!  My friend let me borrow an etching cream she had.
 you just paint it over your template wait 5-7 minutes and then wash it off.  It was super easy.
