Faux Metal Masculine Card

Today I have a wonderful card for you that was made by Tanya.  At Terri's very fun Technique Class one of the techniques that night was the Faux Metal. There are several Faux Metal techniques but this one is done using aluminum foil and running it through an embossing folder.  

I don't know the name of this stamp set, I don't have it in my stash so I can't tell you what it is. It's one that I would probably put on my wishlist because it's a masculine set and there just aren't enough of those out there!

There is one more thing you can do with this technique to give the metal a pewter look.  You can take black StazOn and rub the pad over the aluminum (after it's textured) and then wipe it off gently so you don't ruin the texture.  This will tone the metal down a bit and the black will give the foil a pewter look.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
