Faux Metal Embossing

I love learning new techniques and get even more excited when I create them myself.

Here’s one I came up with that I call faux metal embossing. Granted, there may be others who have done something similar, or even the same thing — great minds think alike — but I discovered it all on my own.

I love how it turned out … it looks so rich and elegant.

This, by the way, is me when I was 6 months old with my Aunt Cheryl, who died when she was 16. A relative recently gave my mom this photo — we were unaware of its existence before then, so I thought it deserved a little special treatment with products from Globecraft Memories.
