CC102 - Tarnished Silver Christmas Card

Hi all! I was so flattered when Tim Holtz asked if he could share my Faux Tarnished Silver technique in today's Creative Chemistry class. It is such a fun technique and his demo was perfect! I didn't have time to create a new piece to share, but I remembered I had one of my CHA samples from this summer that highlights the technique beautifully. The new Ornate Frame die is definitely one of my favorites to use for this technique!

Most of the supplies I used can be found at Inspiration Emporium via the links below. Don't forget to use my coupon code - stamptramp - to save 10%! Also, the IE blog challenge, Falling for Faux, is still going strong and we'd love to have you join us!

Thanks so much for visiting today. Have a fabulous weekend - I hope you pull out those embossing powders and have some fun!
