Faux Cloisonne

A new challenge awaits over on the butterfly blog. It is the turn of using a Technique and this time it's
You will find the instructions on how to make down  below  here after my inspiration cards .

On my first one I have gone with making a card 
using  the colours from the wheel of  Cerise / Camel/ Cardinal, Congratulations and Circles.
The circles are a Card Deco Stitch round die and the sentiment is by Tonic Studios. 
The flower is a Stamp by Hobby Art 'Roses - BK -HA012 which I have coloured using water colour pencils and then blended with a paint brush dipped in water. I stamped using  gold embossing powder and fussy cut the image out after colouring. 

My second card uses the Faux Cloisonne Technique.
I have used the colours  Cerise and Celadon and the sentiment. 

I have used an old shinny calendar for the roses and leaves.  The background is watercolour colour card which I used to mop up some distress inks from my mat. The flower stamp is by Clearly Besotted called Beauty Blossoms. The trellis work is from my pile of white scraps.

Instructions for the Faux Cloisonne Technique.
You will need Magazine pages or any picture which is printed on shiny paper.  I used an old Calendar page for mine above. 
Before stamping your design rub over the picture with either your Embossing Buddy or a little Talc so that the embossing powder does not stick outside of the lines. 

Ink up your stamp using VersaMark ink and stamp on the magazine/ picture.

Pour gold, copper or bronze embossing powder over your image. 

Tap off any excess powder and heat the design using you heat tool until the powder has melted. 

I used a picture which was fireworks for the flowers and trees for my leaves.  It looks a bit fussy and hard to see  at this stage but once you have trimmed around the images you get  the full effect. The flowers look like glass.

I hope you will give the Technique a try as you can get some really stunning effects  from using the magazine pages. 
The challenge is running for the usual three weeks.

Gorgeous effect of the Cloisonne Technique, it looks as stained glass but shining instead of transparent. Thanks for the tutorial.
