Burnished Copper Cards

These are two cards I made in a class at a stamp store in Hollywood, Maryland (which is now closed). The copper piece is heated with a lighter-sized butane burner to get the multi-color effect and then embossed. The chicken card was embossed using a brass template; the tassel card was embossed free-hand on a stamped image. This technique was a lot of fun to do, of course I had to purchase all of the supplies to make more and as usual they were packed away and forgotten about. I was rearranging my craft room and going thru everything sorting things out and came across the supplies and these cards, so they are now in an accessible place and I have promised myself I will get them back out soon and make some more cards.
