MMM - Mid-week Motivation - Faux Metal.

This week the mid-week Motivation is brought to you from dt member Fliss.
My mid week motivation is about faux metal as I only have metal embellishments and there are a couple of very cheap ways of getting the metal look without using the real thing.

Faux Metal With Aluminium Foil Tape

For this technique you will need a roll of foil tape which I found in the tool section of the Pound Shop. You'll need a strip of card a little wider than the tape. I'm using the Alterations Sewing Room set as the dress form fits perfectly on the tape width.
After die cutting the dress form, I then embossed it with the Cuttlebug Clockworks folder .
I then sponged mine with the StazOn inks shown but you could use alcohol inks or Palette inks if you prefer.

I then made a tag with the finished dress form and if you're interested in the materials used, there's a full list on my blog. -(See link above).


  1. Thanks so much for reminding me that I have a roll of this tape stashed away somewhere - completely forgotten about it. Now I have to find it of course!! Great tag

  2. Gorgeous tag and love this technique, saw Sheena using it once before but forgot about it! Thanks for a great tutorial:)
