Faux Metal

Last Friday night some lovely ladies came to my home & I taught them how to make Faux Metal. We had a great night & I thought I'd show you one of the cards we all made
The stampset used to make the flower is Pick a Petal. It was not one of my first choices in the new catalogue, but I am having so much fun with it.
We made the centre of the flower using the Faux Metal technique as well as some heat embossing on the flower petals.

Stampsets: Pick A Petal, Cheer & Wishes
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, Palette of Prints DSP
Ink: Versamark, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Silver Embossing Powder, Eggplant Grosgrain Ribbon

This is a sample card that I CASEd from Splitcoast Stampers

Stampsets: Baroque Motifs, It's Your Birthday
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Night of Navy
Accessories: Gold Embossing Powder, Navy Grosgrain Ribbon, Gold Brads, 1/2 pearl from the Pretties Kit

and one more sample card - this one was so quick & easy.

Stampsets: Baroque Motifs, Heartfelt Thanks
Cardstock: Blue Bayou, Purely Pomegranite, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Purely Pomegranite, Old Olive, More Mustard
Accessories: Silver Embossing Powder, Pomegranite Double Stitched Ribbon

My next technique class will be on Fri 20th June, 7pm & will be on bleach. Come along & learn how to stamp, paint & alter your cards using household bleach. Cost is $12 for 2 cards & a sample with instructions for your technique book.

I haven't forgotten about the tutorial I teased you with the other day - it will be here soon :-)

great cards Alana. I particuarly love the first one, not just because of the Amethyst but that Prints paper works so well on the petals!

I think the cards are lovely too, but you say simple! I have no idea how you would have done them!

These are great Alana - perhaps I could just pop up the road for a class? ~ Will Alan be there too? ;)

I love the "Thanks" card. Simple but looks stunning, very effective use of Faux Metal technique
