I have always enjoyed playing with metals. This card utilizes the technique of Metal Debossing (Copper Burnishing) to create something a little off the beatin' path. It is done much like dry embossing with the exception that the harder you press the deeper the imprint. Be sure to do several depths as it creates a great sense of detail for the image and is more pleasing to the eye than a flat 1-dimensional burnished image.

Ink: Really Rust, Staz On (stamping image to debossing which will become the back side of your piece), Black Craft Ink (to rub on front of image to add more depth perception . . . can also use black acrylic paint . . . wipe on/wipe off before it dries)
Accessories: Dry Embossing Sylus, Lightweight Spackle, Deckle Scissors, Open Flame (is that an accessory?)
Techniques: Metal Debossing, Copper Burnishing
