CAS Mix Up - November 2019 - Oxidized Metal - Christmas Pines

Hi Friends,
Welcome to November's CAS Mix Up Challenge, I am hosting this month and my Challenge is to use the Oxidized Metal Technique.  I only found one Video by Jay Soriano for this technique and thought it might be a quick solution for those last minute Christmas cards.  Jay makes it look so easy, I tried a few times and had mixed results.  The two colours Red and Green muddied easily but I liked the end result and used a couple of pieces I created for my cards.
Please note: Do rub the excess ink off with a Paper Towel after setting the colours with the Clear Embossing Powder, also blot the coloured foil onto scrap paper to help eradicate the excess ink.  I Clear Embossed again after I cut with the dies and this helped lessen the ink transfer and then used tweezers to handle the die cuts.  Also when the ink appears dry foiling might be an option to soak up any excess ink as in using alcohol inks, I didn't try this but I will next time I give it a go.
