Technique Class... Faux Metal Embossing

Ever so innocently I picked up the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set in preparation for my fabulous faux technique class.  This was my third attempt at creating a card using the faux metal technique... not because it is a difficult technique, but that I wanted a special and stunning card for the class.

Stampin' Up! Supplies:

Stampin' Up! Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates  (#114512 / $11.95)

Pocket Silhouettes Stamp Set (#111672 /6 pieces /$18.95)

Accessories:  Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon, Versamark Ink, Silver Embossing Powder


And here's another close up of the faux metal embossing using Pocket Silhouettes, isn't it pretty?




Pin It!

YES! This is very pretty. You did such a beautiful job with the technique. What I've seen in the past (by others) has not been so smooth and pollished looking. TFS!

I love the elegant look of this card. It is even more beautiful when seen in person. Thanks for sharing.
