Faux Metal Technique + video

Hello friends!!  I’m so excited to share with you this fun technique that’s not new, but a cool look to try with your embossing powders!

I really love how this one tuned out!  I have used the “Faux Metal” technique on my card along with the “emboss resist” technique.

In order to share the steps of this card, I’ve made video so you can see how I incorporated these techniques into my design.  CLICK HERE to watch on You Tube or check it out below:

Here’s a closer view of the impressed flower into the embossed panel.  It’s fun to run your fingers over the flower.  I happened to have found the perfect accent for the center of the flower too!  I think it really picks up the pretty colors in the card.
