Faux Metal Tutorial
Foil Tape (you will find this at any hardware store)
Any color card stock
Adirondack Alcohol Ink - Slate (I forgot to put it in the picture...my bad)
Adirondack Paint Dabber - Pitch Black
Sizzix - Tim Holtz Alterations Embossing Folder - Damask & Regal Flourish
The first thing you need to do is cut your card stock to fit the embossing folder. Then cut (in my case) 3 strips of foil tape and cover the card stock.
Once you get it covered, turn it over and fold over the ends the tape so that you have clean edges.
Next, take your alcohol ink and dab it onto the tape and cover it. I had to do two coats in order to get the depth of color I was looking for.
Now you will need to place this in your embossing folder and run it through your Cuttlebug.
As you can see, I needed to cut off the excess paper. This is what it looks like after it comes out of the Cuttlebug. You can't really see the Slate colored ink but trust me, it's there.
You're done! I hope you have as much fun making this as I did.
