Oxidised Metal Take 2

Have you tried this technique yet. It's the theme for our current CAS Mix Up Challenge and I've had some fun trying something new.

This time I stamped the christmas trees with Stazon and when dry, I coloured the background with Distress Ink re-inkers. I used a heat gun to dry this. Next I embossed the metal sheet and then swiped Versamark over the whole panel and clear embossed. 

Stamps: Penny Black 'Prancers' and 'Banner Sentiments'
Embossing Folder: Stampin Up 'Softly Falling'

There are links to some videos on the CAS Mix Up blog, which explain how to do this technique. 

Our Design Team and Guest Designer Arlene,  have
some wonderful inspiration for you.
I hope you'll check us out and join in at

The challenge open until 24 November and you can link your cards here.

I know you'll have fun with this technique:)
