Technique Tuesday - Faux Cloisonne Challenge

Hello friends - a quick post today to share a card I made using a new technique called Faux Cloisonne that I saw over at Technique Tuesday.  I watched the video on the challenge sight (which was nicely done), grabbed a couple of old magazine and a couple outline stamps and went to town with the faux cloisonne process.

I used pewter embossing powder to make my lovely flowers (thought I had grabbed to gold until I started heating it up). In real life the paper is really shiny and glossy - but couldn't get it to show up properly in the photo.  These stamps were pretty easy to fussy cut around and I had fun trying this new technique.  Gonna teach it to a group of ladies today - thanks Technique Tuesday for the great idea!

Gotta run - have an extremely busy day and am already behind what I should have done by now (story of my life lately!).  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today - I'm sure glad that you did.

Til next time friends....hugs and happy crafting! D
