Using Faux Claisonne Technique

Have you ever made a card using the Faux Claisonne technique?  That's what I did here with these two cards.  Faux Claisonne is a really simple technique that you can create using any paper with a pattern and some embossing powder.  You simply select the piece of paper with the pattern you like and then emboss over it with whatever stamp you like.  Tip: it's best to use a stamp with an open image like the flowers and butterflies in the cards below. Sometimes you'll see it done with a page from a magazine and some gold embossing powder.  With my first card,  I used gold embossing powder and a piece of Designer Series Paper along with the Secret Garden Stamp Set and coordinating Secret Garden Framelits to create and cut out the flowers.  With the second card, I used Papillon Potpourri stamp set along with both the Bitty Butterfly and the Elegant Butterfly punches and some silver embossing powder and Designer Series Paper to create the butterflies.  I really like this very simple technique!
