Faux metal card


What a relief after all the Christmas makings.... to make something else! I decided to try out Sue Roddis' faux metal technique - emboss silver mirror card in a Cuttlebug folder and then rub black acrylic paint over, wiping off the excess. I think it does look like tarnished metal, although it has come out very blue in the scan. The bird (Tim Holtz) is also stamped on silver card, and the quote stamp is by Crafty Individuals.
