The Tarnished Foil technique isn’t ‘new’ by any means but it certainly is impressive. Layers of embossing powder provide an aged patina appearance that’s both striking and easy to create. The best part – this technique is fool proof! I promise.

Today’s video will teach you how to create this look with step by step instructions and lots of tips along the way. Tips range from adhering the finished layer to cleaning up stray embossing powder.  I’ve also included three additional cards using this same technique.  Be sure to scroll down past the video in this post so you don’t miss the pictures, cutting dimensions and supplies.
