1. Saturday Challenge is a
***Different Card/Technique***
Faux Metallic Embellishment
Here's my sample card as a design team member 
for Mark's Finest Papers! Thanks for looking and head 
on over to JOIN IN the challenge fun!
This was a great tutorial and I can't believe I never thought
of it before. Silly me. I first stamped my flower and 
colored it using Copic markers. Then I followed the 
tutorial and silver embossed my die cut tag 3 times and 
"stamped" my sentiment.  It made a great metallic look.
Once it cooled, which didn't take long at all, I punched 
holes on each side and ran a ribbon around and attached 
it, using some pop dots under the tag. I added a couple of 
tiny gems and put together my layers to complete 
the card. I enjoyed this tutorial and will use it again!!

Thanks for stopping by and consider following my blog.

  1. Great card and I'm going to have look at that technique as truly looks like a piece of engraved metal.

  2. This is gorgeous, Pam!!! Your faux-metal tag really stands out. I'm so glad you found that technique -- isn't it a fun one? I love doing this and then on the third round, tossing bits of a few different colored powders on -- it creates a really neat effect. :-)

    1. Thanks, Deedee! I'll certainly have to try the colored powder flecks in it. Sounds awesome!!
