F is for Faux Metal

F is for Faux Metal. This is another technique to make paper look like metal.
Cover card stock with silver paint and let dry.
Spray a black glitter mist over the paper in spots and let dry. I made a glitter mist by adding a few drops of black Distress ink and some Perfect Pearls to water in a mini mister.
If desired, run the painted card through an embossing folder to give the appearance of pressed metal.
