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.
