Metal Effects

Summer hols are nearly over so one last workshop before we start being infiltrated with Christmas cards!! This month we are focusing on faux metal effects. Techniques available include using scraper foil board with the Cuttlebug embossing folders and using metal tape with alcohol inks and acrylic paint. The metal gilding flakes will also be available for anyone who wants to revisit this technique.

You still have another month to complete your challenge - create a new card from an old card.

See you on Wednesday.
