Clean & Simple 3 Card Class – Day 1 Faux Effects

My new online card class, Clean & Simple 3 started today.  I’m so excited.  It was packed with different faux effects.  My card today was inspired by Kristina Werner lesson on faux metal elements.  Creating this card took sometime and trial and error.  My metal circles refused to stay circles but it has grown on me.

The faux metal circle was created using silver embossing powder, circle mask and a heart stamp.  Its amazing what you can create when you put your mind to it.

Take a look at my new faux metal element card:

I also used VersaMark to do my embossing.

I had a great time learning this new technique and I really enjoyed trying out this new technique.  I’m going to continue perfecting this technique so that I can use it on other cards as well.
