Tim Holtz Texture Fades and Embossing on Metal with Alcohol Inks

I would like to share with you embossing on metal using the Big Shot Machine, Ranger Alcohol Inks and the new Tim Holtz Alterations line - Texture Fades embossing folders.
The Flourish in the last image is from Tim Holtz Alterations line, I covered the flourish with Gold Leaf flakes - from La D'ore and applied it with their liquid adhesive. The second image showcases a another wonderful Sizzix Die from the Tim Holtz Alterations line.. the Hearts and Wings Bigz Diecut. The journal embossed phrase, is from Stamper's Anonymous (Just Words) by Wendy Leach.
The Tim Holtz Distress inks used on this altered piece are: Barn Door, Shabby Shutters, Rusty Hinges, and Wild Honey.
This was a piece of Gold Metal which I applied Ranger Alcohol Inks with the Applicator and Blending Solution
Insert your Metal piece into Alterations Texture Fades...this particular folder is called Checker Boards. Be sure it is right side up.

Emboss your piece with the Big Shot Machine and then Trim as desired.

Gently sand your embossed metal using a light touch going in a circular motion. Continue to sand until you are satisfied with the look you have achieved...
For a brushed metal look, I use a make-up sponge and apply with a light application of Ranger's Black Archival a light sweeping motion. You can also try using a colored Distress ink pad - Rusty Hinge. Heat set your creation with a heat gun. Be very cautious not to over heat the metal.

Here is another sample of a metal sheet I did, using Texture Fades folder called "Patch Work"
The Ranger Alcohol Ink combos are: Shell Pink, Salmon, Watermelon, and Raspberry. The second layer of Alochol Inks are: Aqua, Pool, Willow, Lemonade and Pitch black.

All products used for this Tutorial  are from a Canadian online Scrapbooking and Stamping store called
Scrapbooking Fanatics.
thank you for stopping by...hope you enjoyed my tutorial.

Thanks a lot for sharing such an awesome cards creation and your experience about the metal stamping process was too interesting. I have read an article about the metal stamping process and the process involves various methods of operations to achieve the creative designs of metals. Stamping On Metal
