My 1st Time Using the Faux Metal Technique

Supplies:  Silver Embossing Powder on VersaMark Ink; Chipboard Tag; Stamp, "Mixed Bunch" by SU and "Tiny Tags" by SU; Ribbon, Everyday Enchantment Calypso Coral and Twine; Paper, "Everyday Enchantment" in Sale-a-Bration; Brad, SU Sale-a-Bration; Heating Gun

I'm doing a demo tomorrow on the Faux Metal Technique.  And this is my 1st time doing it!!!  Could be a little...um...interesting.  lol  The secret was to stamp the image while the embossing powder is still hot.  Also heat it a little longer than usual so it's extra hot.  For my tag, I used 4 layers of silver embossing powder.  Hope that helps.  Have a good weekend, everybody!
