Faux Cloissone

I stumbled upon this technique as I was browsing for ideas. It’s very simple and very striking.

Simply emboss stamped images on old magazine or catalog pages and then cut them out!  They can be used on cards or scrapbook pages. I found I prefer to use heavier pages such as covers.  Of course the more color there is on the page, the more dramatic the effect will be.

Here are some samples I made:


I used a page with less color for the doves to give them a more natural look.


Just one word of warning… You’ll never look at junk mail the same way again!
