Faux Patina Tutorial

Here's one of the cards we made at the Technique Tuesday class in September.
This is an easy technique with several steps – for a GORGEOUS result!
1.  First you want to apply Crumb Cake ink directly to the flat side of the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder – just rub your ink pad onto the folder.  Run your white layer of card stock through the Big Shot so it looks like this:

2.  Now sponge Marina Mist ink on the raised areas of your layer:
3.  Then sponge Always Artichoke ink over the same area:
4.  And we end with the sponging of Early Espresso ink:
5.  Dab your Embossing Buddy over the layer – don't rub.  Or you can let it sit for a while to dry.  If you try the next step too soon – the embossing powder will stick to the entire layer.
6.  Now touch your raised images with the VersaMark ink pad…careful not too get too much ink on this step.  You can always add more.  Then emboss with gold embossing powder.
The first card I made with this techique had a little too much VersaMark ink – so almost all the raised images were covered in gold embossing.  On my 2nd attempt at it – I used less ink and it turned out really good!
I used the FROM THE HEART stamp set 126555 – Wood $39.95 or 126557 $28.95 Clear:
