Today I am bringing you a quick tutorial on a technique I call 'Faux Stone'. It is a fun technique that you can use to achieve different looks depending on the colors you use.
Here is what you will need:
White cardstock cut to size needed
Mosaic Cuttlebug embossing folder
Two or more colors of ink in different shades (I used grays)
Clear embossing powder
Daubers or sponges
Step 1: Dry emboss your cardstock with the Mosaic folder
Step 2: Lay in your colors, starting with the lightest color and work toward the center.
Step 3: Cover your piece with versamark (I used an older pad, so that the ink didn't ruin a new one)
Step 4: Apply clear embossing powder to the entire piece and heat with embossing gun.
You can use browns, reds or a combination of both to achieve a whole different look as seen in this card:
Now go create some faux stone!
Thanks for stopping by!
