Faux Cloisonné

This is an unusal old technique that only requires a magazine photo of flowers (I like to use a floral bedspread picture), Versamark and gold embossing powder.

1. Pick your floral photo....this will determine the color scheme for your card.
2. Stamp an open line stamp (one with line edges not a color-block type stamp like you'd use for faux shaving cream) in Versamark onto the magazine/catalog photo.
3. Cover with gold embossing powder.
4. Heat emboss.
5. Cut out the image leaving the gold edges.
6. Finish your card.
