So you all know I just *love* creating Texas-inspired cards, right? Well I am over the moon excited to share some news! My dear friend Jimmye Sue Mitchell, owner of Texana Designs, has invited me to be a part of her very first design team! Yeehaw!! And today I have my first "official" design team card for you! We're getting into the Valentine's spirit - Texas style!
Isn't this Barbed Wire Heart fabulous? Thinking about barbed wire made me think metal, and metal made me think of a technique I learned many moons ago - faux metal! Have you ever tried it?
You just add layer upon layer of embossing powder (I used some old copper EP from my stash!) and then, finally, press your stamp into the still-warm-and-melty EP to get your image. Fun! Just make sure you have Versamark ink on your stamp before you press it into the warm EP, it keeps your stamp from getting all gunked up.
So I'm curious - I'm thinking about doing some technique videos, just for fun. Would you want to see something like this? Or is it such an old & well-known technique, it would be silly to film it? I just have no feel for what would or would not be interesting. So let me know what you think!! Is there anything else you'd like to see?
I want to extend a huge Texas-sized THANK YOU to Jimmye Sue for allowing me to be a part of her team. I am extremely honored! Be sure to head on over to the Texana blog & become a follower! And also go ahead and "LIKE" the Texana Facebook page! :-)
