An Amazing Technique

Hey Gals!

Even though I haven't been active posting, I have been very busy with the Technique Geeks, workshops, & planning for upcoming classes!, I want to share an amazing technique I discovered when planning my monthly Technique Geek class.

This technique is called, Faux Cloisonne.  It is very simple, and has amazing results!  The first step is to select images from magazines, or designer paper, that have an appealing color pattern or color pallet.  Then you stamp a "line art" image in Versamark, & heat emboss with gold embossing powder.  You then cut out the image & layer over Basic Black cardstock.  Here are some samples...

Aren't these embossed images gorgeous!  The gals in the Technique class had so much fun selecting their images and comparing the results.
Next, you use your gorgeous image to complete your card.  Here is our completed card...(note, I used a different magazine image for my card)
I love how the completed card came out...I will definitely be using this technique again!

Card ingredients:  Card base, Soft Suede, Big Shot Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Basic Black & Very Vanilla cardstock, & the gorgeous Champagne Glimmer paper from the Holiday Mini.  Also, Soft Suede ink, Stamp sets Day of Gratitude & Seasonal Sayings (the sentiment from Seasonal Sayings is available as a single stamp.  Check out my business website for all the great stamps that are available as single stamps for a limited time only...

We have a great time at our monthly Technique Geeks class.  No commitment, the only requirement is to pre-register.  Click on the chalkboard for upcoming classes.

Hope you enjoyed todays ideas... Thanks for stopping by...
