The final week for our technique of faux metal gives us this beauty from Kim -
I didn't really know what faux textured metal was, but we were given a link to a video showing us a version of it. Here's my take which uses a digital stamp set from Stampin' Up (retired), "For All You Do". I printed them in red (and the stem and sentiment in black) and cut them in my Silhouette. I coated them with VersaMark and brushed Perfect Pearls on top. Then I matted them on Basic Black card stock. Then I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock and colored direct to paper with my Real Red ink and brushed that with Perfect Pearls as well. I wiped off the excess on all pieces. I embossed the inked panel with the Oriental Weave embossing folder and attached that to a black mat as well. I colored two sized pearls with Copics black and attached them to the flower centers. Everything was attached to a Whisper White card stock base. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I've included a second picture of the card front from a different angle so you can see the faux textured metal better. Kim from Katydid Cards.
Even though the technique was the same for the designers the past 5 weeks, we have some really different looks, so go look at the past Thursday's and have a go at it yourself.-
