When I first learned of the Faux Metal technique I was intrigued and could hardly wait to give it a try.

Oh, it’s messy but totally worth it. It does use a fair amount of Embossing Powder so it’s not a technique to make multiples of but rather a card to make for a special someone or occasion.

I must say the possibilities are endless with the images you can stamp into the heated embossing powder. For example, you could try copper embossing powder and stamp a lieaf or

silver embossing powder and stamp a heart impression. Both of these would be a beautiful faux metal focal point.
