Yield: 1- A7 Card

Wet Ingredients:

Ink – Alcohol Espresso, Sepia, Rust; Archival Black Soot

Dry Ingredients:

Paper –Kraft Stock 3 (metallic)

Embossing – Detail Black


Other – Foam Tape (Black), Heat Tool, Masking Sheet, Media Mat, Mini Mister, Paper Trimmer, Steel Wool, Tiny Attachers

Stamps – Floral Outlines, Observations






* make sure to remove the masking before melting the embossing powder  

it doesn't take a lot to remove the black metallic ink layer, think buff off not scrub. The embossing
 powder will lose all its shine and look fuzzy as you do this, a little re-heat later will bring it all back!


Using a mini-mister I added just a light spritz of water before painting the alcohol inks.  
The water gives more open time to paint and creates a very watery look on metallic papers
 (i use this trick a lot)  it does take longer to dry between layers but, I assure you it is worth the wait.
