I am offering a techniques class on the 3rd Monday evening of each month this year so I sat down to begin creating the samples for the first three techniques that the class participants will be learning.
This card was made using the Faux Cloissonne technique. After cutting the oval using a Nestabilities die, I applied Versamark pen to the outer edge and then embossed in gold to match the image. I didn't have gold brads (how can that be????) so I used antique brass brads and added gold stickles.
The background is embossed using a Cuttlebug Textile folder and BigShot. I was limited on ribbon choices for this project but his one worked well. It is difficult to see in the photo, but when the light hits the brads and gold embossing the ribbon matches perfectly.
Thanks for looking (and reading if you did!).
