Happy Fall Everyone! We have already had some fall weather days with crisp and cool air. It was nice to turn the air conditioning off. But warm days are coming back for a bit.
Here is my next card featuring the Country Home stamp set and the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF).
Card base is Old Olive with a mat of Crushed Curry, followed by a top layer of Galvanized Metallic Paper. Metallic paper was embossed with the Tin Tile TIEF. I'll talk about the aged looked of the Galvanized paper in a minute.
The card also features the Country Lane Designer Series Paper (Rich Razzleberry strip and the stripped piece behind the milk can) and the Fabulous Chicken Wire embellishment. The Chicken Wire comes on a 3-3/4" x 5-3/8" sheet that you can use whole or cut into smaller pieces like I did. Very cool item! Stampin' Up! already sold out once on these so be sure to get some.
The milk can stamped image and floral stamp (stamped with Black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock) are both colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. The milk can is colored with Light and Dark Old Olive and I used the Color Lifter to get some extra shading. The ribbon knot is the 3/16" Braided Linen Trim ribbon from the 2018 Holiday Catalog. It is about a 2" piece tied with a simple know and then I separated the braided strings apart.
AGED TIN TILE TECHNIQUE:
To age or antique the Galvanized Metallic Paper, first emboss with the Tin Tile TIEF. Next, lightly rub a VersaMark pad over the raised elements. You do not want to push too hard! And you want to do it randomly over the metallic paper. Now pout Gold Embossing Powder all over and dump off excess. The powder will only stick to where the VersaMark is. Heat with your Heat Tool. Next, do this again with the VersaMark pad, hitting areas you did not get with the gold (which is perfect!). Now pour on Copper Embossing Powder, dump off excess, and heat. It is okay if the copper and gold overlap.
I went a little light on my embossing powder, but you can make it as heavy and dark as you would like.
TIP: After pouring on the embossing powders, if there is a straight edge from the VersaMark pad, just take your finger and rub off the powder. You do not want to have those lines.
I hope you liked this sample. Any questions, please leave me a comment!
