Faux Patina Technique

It sure was good to see friends at this month's CRaft Class. I taught them how to create a faux patina look with a bit of white cardstock, and embossing folder, some inks and embossing powder. It was amazing to see how we all turned out different effects usign the same tools, techniques and cardstock1 Each card was truly a one-off. Here's mine:

I just love the glimpses of gold and the depth you can get with layering inks!

If you want to see more examples of this technique and see some instructions for hwo to make your own, my PaperCraftCentral Facebook page has all that. And if you need any of the supplies used, come back to SusanSalutations and place your order :)

Happy stampin'!
