Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

I've been wanting to try creating a faux metal focal image ever since seeing Gina' s video. Thank goodness for her tip to reheat and restamp the image if it didn't come out right the first time, or the second time, or the third time ..... !! To create the faux metal, I used Ranger's bronze Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE). I cut the shape out first, embossed it several times and then stamped the image while the UTEE was still hot. I used Memento bamboo leaves ink for my smooshed background and for the leaves. The stamps I used are from GKD "Faith is Hope" and "Elegant Florals" sets.

Your faux metal is awesome. It really looks like metal to me. Your card is beautiful.

Love your faux metal butterfly (and your description of your process!) over the delicate leaves. Thanks for playing!

This is gorgeous!  And the focal image is very effective!

Awesome card design. It looks like you brush the stamp pad across the acetate to achieve such a swept look! At any rate, how you did it, I sure do love it. And I love that faux metal butterfly. I don't have any of those darker Utee embossing powders, so might have to consider them. I only have more clear types.
