|Any-occasion Man-card featuring the Faux Patina technique, along with the Seasonal Sayings (128009), Clockworks (131973) and Off the Grid (130736) stamp sets.|
- To create the Faux Patina panel I inked the smooth side of my Alphabet Press TIEF with my Crumb Cake ink pad and then ran a piece of Whisper White card stock through it. I then sponged with Island Indigo, Always Artichoke and Early Espresso ink (in that order) to get the depth of colour. Then I lightly rubbed my Versamark ink pad across the whole panel and heat embossed with both gold and silver embossing powder.
- The background panel is a piece of Early Espresso card stock that I stamped with the Off the Grid stamp and then heat embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder. I then stamped the gears from the Clockworks stamp set using the silver Encore Metallic ink pad (132142).
- The sentiment is also heat embossed but this time I used gold, silver and Early Espresso embossing powder. I sponged the edges lightly with Early Espresso ink and curled the banner with my bone folder before adding the Antique Brad (117273).
