Technique Twist-Faux Patina Bronze Medallion

Turn Paper into Metal with this fun Technique!

Yes , believe it or not my medallion necklace is made from 
Brushed Gold card stock,
 gold embossing powder, 
and a couple of dry embossing folders,
2 stamps, 
and 3 colors of ink.

It's all a part of this week's 


Grab the Badge!

Now I have to admit I went a Little crazy with mine, but you will for sure want
to see what the other's have done with their cards HERE
So come on over and try the technique
yourself, but keep it simply right??!!

Here's what I did......

Cut 2 back pieces of Brushed Gold card stock using the Apothecary Accent Die
 and a Big Shot machine.

Dry emboss one of the pieces using a filigree style embossing folder like
 Beautifully Baroque or I used Vintage Wallpaper which just retired.

After embossing glue the two pieces together for extra thickness so it won't  

Punch 2 Extra Large Oval Brushed Gold pieces and run 1 piece through the
 Designer Frames embossing folder, glue pieces together.

With a Versamark pad and Gold Embossing powder, emboss 1
 Magnificent Maple and glue to a second piece of Brushed Gold card stock.

Cut through 2 layers of card stock around the outside edges of the maple leaf.

Gold Emboss the GRATITUDE sentiment from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set
  on Brushed Gold card stock and trim around the sentiment.

Time to sponge Ink on Each individual part (4) with Island Indigo , Cajun Craze, and Early Espresso.

Heat set with a Heat Tool by lightly using gun on all inked areas.

Assemble the layers and I also used a Bone Folder to curl the edges of the 
  Maple Leaf. Use a good craft adhesive to glue your layers together.

Punch a hole in the top with a Piercing Tool and add a bronze colored 
  jump ring and chain from your local craft store.
