Faux Metal Technique with "Sailing Home Bundle" - VIDEO

Hi Friends! Last month I shared photos from the speciality classes that I held during my Spring Creative Escape Retreat, one being for the "Faux Metal Technique". This technique has been around for a long time but I know it's a new technique for many stampers who have never seen it before.

The "Faux Metal" technique is an easy and fun way to transform card stock to look like metal, using layers of embossed powder. The end result always has a big "wow" factor for sure. This technique is useful in many ways, and I'll share another video for that soon, but for today I hope you enjoy these "Faux Metal" tags!

The sentiment on this tag was stamped onto card stock & glued on, rather than embossed directly into the 'faux metal' layer.

The sentiment was stamped directing onto a scrap piece of "Faux Metal", then cut & glued onto tag.
