Now on with my project for the day...

I made several cards based on this video by Jennifer McGuire Ink



I used Ranger Distress Inks for all the backgrounds and Perfect Pearls or 
Pearl EX Powders to create the faux metal effect. 
I used a variety of Darice and Sizzix embossing folders.

Hope you like them.  I highly recommend giving this technique a try. 
It is lots of fun and produces an awesome card.

Happy Crafting
