Faux metal ornament


It's time for our Mid month reminder cards over at CAS Christmas.

Drop by and see all the wonderful ornament cards by the Design Team and all the challenge entries, there's so much inspiration to get you going on your Christmas card stash.

You've probably seen a number of Faux Enamel cards posted recently so this is my version.  You can either use a hot plate or a heat gun  but I found the hot plate was the easiest method to melt the embossing powder for me, this video by Scrap Time gives a great how too tutorial.

My ornament is die cuts from Memory box and after I layered my embossing powders I embedded some pearls across the middle.  My background stamp is JOFY from Paper Artsy which I used coloured pencils in blue and silver tones of the the ornament, and sentiment is from Rubbernecker which I stamped in Ranger archival blue.

I'd love to hear from you😊

  6. This is quite a different & unusual look with this faux enamel technique (TFS the video link too!) It's so pretty and I love the look of the ornament imposed over that background design. I really love the look you've achieved too, very much. TFS & Hugs
