My card has been created using our sketch for this month. I again decided to use “Boys Will be Boys” which has grown on me & since using it here a lot of other ideas have popped into my head.
I’ve had this Silver Foil sitting in one of my drawers for a couple of years & thought this was the perfect time to use some of it. I decided to emboss it using the Chevron Embossing Folder prior to adhering to a piece of Tangerine Tango Card.
I stamped the Robot Image onto a piece of Whisper White Card using Versamark & Smokey Slate Inks. I embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder & set with Heat Tool before randomly colouring with my Blender Pen & Smokey Slate Ink.
For my greeting, I decided to try the Faux Metal Technique to match the Silver Foil & the embossed imaged. If you haven’t tried this technique before, you will be amazed at how hooked you will become. It gives such a rich finish to your card.
I rubbed Versamark over a piece of Whisper White Card, poured Silver Embossing Powder over the top & heat set with a Heat Tool. I repeated this 2 more times. On the 3rd time & while still warm, I then carefully stamped my greeting into the embossing, ensuring my stamp didn’t slip & slide. The stamp tends to leave a deep metal image, hence giving the effect of “Metal”.
In fact, I liked it so much that I created another card with my greeting cut into a Banner at one end & using a Tangerine Tango Dot from the Brights Collection Dots.
