ONLINE CLASS: How to create the Distressed Metal Technique – Part 5 in my Waterfront Series

CARD

How to create the “Distressed Metal” look with Stampin’ Up! Foils on today’s live online class and video. This class is final part of my series on the Waterfront Stamp Set. I’ll also be featuring the One Wild Ride and Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Sets.

A super cool and easy technique that was born when a “pinterest fail” turned into a wow card lol. I stumbled upon this look completely by accident when trying to duplicate a different technique. My original idea may have failed, but I actually like the cool distressed look it created even better then the original.

I’m using a 4 way nail polishing sanding “buffer” block, but you could use any type of buffing paper or file.

 

LIVE RESCHEDULED UNTIL WEDNESDAY AY 2pm EST
I’m creating these cards live on Facebook and giving away some bonus prize patrol for viewers.  If you can’t make it live, this video replay will be on here on my blog, Facebook , Youtube and Vimeo, along with an “after live” drawing (below).
