Faux {Stamped} Diamond Plate

Sunday, March 16, 2014

 
Taking inspiration today from the tool box in my husband's truck
to make a masculine birthday card!
 
 
 
I wanted to create the illusion of texture because the diamond plate design is embossed into the metal.
I created the shadow by first stamping all of the light gray shapes and then dragging just the edge of the stamp through the black and stamping directly over top of the already stamped image.
It was surprisingly easy to do!
 
 
 
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!
