*Aud Sentiment - Patterned Paper, Embossing, Die Cut

It's called the tarnished foil technique. I first saw it on pinterest, then went to youtube to see if they had a "how to" and here is my version.
You can go here to see the tutorial:  Tarnished Foil Technique

It's really pretty easy, it takes an embossed pc of silver mirror paper, (I used cuttlebugs hexagons) black staz on ink, embossing ink and a couple of embossing powders, (gold and copper) and that's it, but the result is stunning. It really does look tarnished.

I think I was a little heavy handed with the embossing powders and staz on ink, it's not suppose to look that stark, more blended and muted. Oh well, next time.





That's all for tonight.
Thanks to all the challengers above for lettin' me play along.
Blessings!
