The FauX Sisters

Happy Halloween! A different Halloween for many, to be sure, but any excuse to eat extra treats and play a few tricks, right? ;)  The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers have a treat AND a trick for you, and that would be our new challenge, F is for FauX. Lots of faux techniques out there to discover, or perhaps you have a favourite. My pick is faux metal:

I die cut the large Merry Christmas sentiment three times from white cardstock and adhered them together for a solid base before I started some heavy-duty heat embossing! Four coats of silver embossing gave me the metal-like finish I was hoping for. For the small snowflakes, I used two layers of cardstock and three layers of embossing. I also added a border of silver embossing to my red cardstock layer and the sentiment panel. 

My sisters in snark, and our reigning Queen of Snark Beverly, have all kinds of ways to show off how faux they are! Hope you will find time to join us.
