Never tried Faux Cloisonne Technique, hope to have time to have a go. It's mandatory using an embossing powder? It's possible also with glittered/mirror die cuts or metallic stickers?
Beautiful inspirations as always!

Thanks for the new challenge...the technology doesn't appeal to me so I'll try to join in for the other option.
You show very beautiful inspiration cards 😍

I enjoyed this challenge... and got three cards finished. However, I work all day tomorrow and am running late getting them posted. So I have one on my blog, and two others linked from Pinterest. Hope that is okay? Thanks for this new technique. I had to be very creative since I cannot find my heat gun anywhere... and couldn't remember how to use a toaster (which I did try back in 1997 when I first discovered embossing! Ha!)
