Faux Metal

A friend recently sent me a note pad holder with the coolest faux metal piece. I was so fascinated by it that I called her one night and asked her to explain the procedure to me which she did in detail. The next morning on the Stampin' Up! demo website was a tutorial for the same technique! It was fate! I had these little mini composition books made up for convention but they lacked something. I decided they needed a little faux metal treatment. All supplies from Stampin' Up!

Stamp set: Baroque Motifs
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Brushed Silver
Ink: Rose Red
Accessories: Scallop circle punch, 1 3/8 scallop punch, Rose Red prints paper, Versamark, Silver embossing powder, Sticky strip

I had so much fun with the faux metal technique! I will be doing a faux metal class soon!
