These cards use a combination of 2 techniques from the "Techniques Junkies" Feb/Mar 2008 Newsletter. The techniques are aged metal and penciled twinks. They were easy to do, but create such fabulous results.
For the aged metal background, I first embossed the metalic looking paper with my "CuttleBug". Next I slid black STAZON ink
over the embossing.
The image was outlined in watercolor pencil, then filled in with twinkling H2O's. After I did the fill in, I brought the wet Aqua brush across the penciled areas, dragging the color into the image. And ta da! A great looking card. Stamped image by "Stampin Up".
