Faux Rusty Metal

Good morning! Today's card uses a technique called Faux Rusted Metal from the April/May 2010 issue of Technique Junkie Newsletter. In real life, this card has much more texture, shimmer, and color variation than you can see in the picture. If you have some of the new Tim Holtz Alterations dies, like the locks & keys, gears, birdcage, or sign, this would be an excellent technique. It really does look like metal!

The stamps are by Artistic Outpost and are stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed with black embossing powder. The image piece is mounted on black, then on brushed copper card stock.

I made extra pieces, so you may see more postings - maybe a birdcage or some gears in our future!
