Faux techniques are always fun and they usually come pretty close to resembling what they're imitating.
The instructions for this one say to use magazine paper to apply gold embossing powder to. This gives you a shiny, colourful bachground showing through the gold. I changed it up simply by using up some scraps I had on hand. Yes, using up the scraps again, but they provided the colour and shine I needed for the technique.
That's basically all there is to this one too. Just gold emboss over colourful background paper. It looks great done with magazine paper too. ;)
