Faux Metal Tutorial

This is my first little tutorial, so I would love your feedback- good or bad!! Let me know if you would like to see more or not.

I have seen this technique done by just stamping the image with Versamark, but I like the added black for this camper.

You only need a few materials to make your own faux metal accessories.
3.Metalic embossing power- I did silver
5.Whisper White CS
6. Heat Tool

1. Ink your paper directly with the versamark pad. Put cover back on ink pad so you don't get embossing powder on it!!

2. Sprinkle on embossing powder covering the entire stamped area.

3.Heat until melted. Once it is melted, let it cool for a minute. Read step 4 before continuing. Repeat steps 1-3 two more time, so that you have 3 layers of embossing power.

4. Before heating the last layer of embossing powder, ink your stamp with StazOn and have it ready to stamp.

5. As soon as all embossing powder has melted, stamp the image onto the warm embossing powder. Make sure you press the stamp straight down because it will slide.

7.Here is the stamped image. Cut it out.

8. Complete card.

Hi Michelle! That is the coolest thing ever. (You know my story with the heating tool and ebay so we won't go there. lol) I will definatly have to try this when I get a heating tool. *sigh* darn eBay anyway. lol. The black does make the camper pop out a lot more and it gives it that touch that it needs. I love it! Thanks for showing this. And you should do more of these!.. :)

Good idea. I love the "Gulf Stream" silver camper. Mom always wanted one of those. Now, maybe I can give her one! Keep the tutorials coming. You did a good job putting it together.
