Valentine Tag Day #6

Day 6 - we’re almost half way there… Today let’s get frosted, well, at least remove some frosting. Today’s tag features embossing on Frosted Memory Glass (Ranger), faux metal and a beautiful copper tree.

Some of the steps involved: (a)use VersaMark and clear embossing powder to “reverse” the frost on the memory glass - remember to use your embossing buddy to prevent any embossing crumbs on your glass - the glass it trimmed with copper tape (Ranger), (b) faux metal is a really easy technique, just add several layers (here I used 3) of embossing powder, remember to heat in between, on your last layer while still hot stamp with your inked image (I used Stazon ink on the stamp)

General: Stamps -> Country Blessings (SU), Large Tree (Rubber Cottage), Inks -> Soft Sky, Old Olive, Choc Chip (all SU), Timber Brown Stazon, Library Clip (SU)
The Tag:

Faux Metal #6 - this was made on a scrap of card stock:

They friendship saying - a perfect match to the tree image:

This was my first time using the memory glass - it was easy and the effect is beautiful.

I would love to hear what you think….

I love this one the most, odd considering how awesome your other ones are, how much detail and cool techniques and little hanging things and ribbons, etc. on your others but this tree, how you did it and the saying just do it for me. I need to find a way to make this one for myself!
