A big thanks to Rebecca over at the Crafting Mistfit for inviting me to this GREAT blog hop.
It is all about a new technique or using a new material. I have been wanting to try this Faux metal technique. This technique can be done in silver, gold, copper any color will work. You need Versa Mark or any Watermark stamp pad and embossing powder and matching card stock.
Start with 5.5x 4.25 paper cover complete with versamark then with the embossing powder
next heat the embossing powder
this is the result
let the paper cool and repeat 3 to 4 times
next cut into 1.25 squares you will need 12
Arrange the squares in the embossing folder
of your choice
select the most appealing element
the squares will amazingly look like metal.
apply these to black or dark card stock
leave small gaps to look like grout lines
the center a black mat 2.75 x 4.25
blue layer 2.5 x 4
