Need for Speed on Faux Metal

This is a very fun and easy technique.  You just need some aluminum foil and black StazOn.  Other colors of StazOn would work too but black fit this image so much better.  This card was made by Terri at her monthly Technique Class.  There's such a fun group of ladies there and I look forward to seeing them every month.  

I did this technique a while back.  You can find the instructions for it here.  

The only thing you really need to keep in mind when you are doing this technique is how much pressure you are putting on the textured foil.  The harder you rub the more your image will flatten out.  Not a good thing!

Terri always has such great card ideas.  The image is from The Need for Speed set and with the Argyle background embossing folder it was a perfect match!  I just got the Argyle folder and the Houndstooth one.  I won them in a drawing!!! Lucky me.  I have used the Argyle one but have not used the Houndstooth one yet!!  But it's on my long list of supplies for the cards I want to make.  I wish I had more time in a day to make more cards and projects!!!  I'm working on a way to accomplish that.  So far it's not working.  Housework, job, cooking and that darn sleeping get in the way!!! LOL

Anyway, this is a very fun, easy and super quick technique to play with. Oh and SO effective too!  

I have 4 packs of technique pages for sale in my web store.  I have some finished page sets and of course all the sets are available on CD.  You can print them out for classes.  Your customers/students will do the technique and take the page home with them and a card if you opt to include a card in the class too.  You can print out as many as you like, there's no limit.  Each technique comes with a photo of the finished page for reference.  It's an easy way to hold classes without a lot of time and planning on your part!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
