Stamp Camp Faux Metal


You still have time to enter for the stamp in my post earlier today.  Just click HERE.

But I wanted to share this card.  I did it for 2peas Stamp Camp… Kristina Werner's faux metal class.  To make this metal accent, I covered a chipboard flower with Versamark.  I then added silver embossing powder – 5 layers.  After the last layer and while it is still hot, I pressed a Versamarked flower image in the powder and let it cool.  Here is the result…

Papertrey Ink stamps (background and greeting)
BasicGrey Sultry 6×6 papers
BasicGrey chipboard flower (from Urban Prairie line)
Silver embossing powder
Silk ribbon and brad

I also did a video on faux metal several weeks ago.  You can see it HERE.

Have a great night!  See you tomorrow.

    I love how you embossed the chipboard flower and now it looks like metal! WOW!! How many layers of embossing powder did you have to use to get it looking so realistic?
    Thanks for the great idea!

    Love the chipboard, is so perfect with the colors of the BG papers. I have the blade for cutting chipboard with my Cricut. If you need some extra shape shoot me an email. I need to use this technique more often.

    Happy Halloween
