1. Make a sheet of faux metal paper but combining inks and water as I did in the video. I used distress oxide inks in shades of blue-green and brown as well as metallic acrylic paint. Let dry.
2. Stamp wheelbarrow, milk can and watering can on the metal paper and set aside to dry. Stamp the same images on white cardstock where you want them to be on the final card. Remember scale when you do this to make sure the scene looks right.
3. Use an ink blending brush and distress oxide inks to color the bottom of the card green and the top blue. Sponge in more green ink under the stamped objects.
4. Stamp flowers and leaves over the cans and wheelbarrow, make sure to overlap the stamped containers.
5. Use markers to color the wheelbarrow wheel and legs and add grasses around the containers as well.
6. Cut out the faux metal containers and glue them over the stamped ones on the cardstock.
7. Wrap twine around the bottom of the card and tie on the inside.
8. Stamp “thank you” on a die cut banner and glue to the card with a button.
I hope you try out these fun techniques and save the scraps because you can use them when you need another metal embellishment, this faux metal looks amazing embossed too! Have a great weekend and til next time happy crafting!
