Father's Day Card Using Faux Copper

This card is going to my FIL as well. I used regular Wal-Mart cs and copper brads, and embossed the squares to dress it up a bit. The stamp is from my "Say It With Stamps" collection by All Night Media. I made faux copper for the sentiment by taking a piece of white cs and covering it with Versamark and copper EB powder. I heated it with the heat gun, and then repeated this step until I had 4 layers. While the 4th layer was still hot I stamped my sentiment in it, and it gave it the engraved look. Don't you think it actually looks like engraved copper? This is one of my favourite techniques because I really like how it turns out. I've done it with silver, gold, and bronze too.
