Cardz 4 Guyz: Metallic Madness

Hi everyone!  today it's my turn to choose the theme at Cardz 4 Guyz  I've chosen a theme of Metallic Madness - use something metal or metallic on your card.

I decided to do some metal embossing, which is something I hadn't done for quite a while.  I started with a piece of thin copper, stamped an image on the back with Stazon ink, then placed my them stamped metal on a foam mat and used an embossing tool to go over the stamped image.  I added the frame using a roller tool.

I wanted to make the embossed panel look old, so I painted it with black acrylic paint and then rubbed it off with a piece of kitchen roll.  I left it to dry, then matted and layered it onto black and gold card.

To create the background of the card, I dabbed Versamark ink through a stencil then gently brushed on  mica powder in various metallic colours.

To finish off my card I added some die cut cogs and wheels and a stick on sentiment.

I hope you can join us this week at Cardz 4 Guyz.
