I found a technique called
"FAUX PATINA" on SplitCoastStampers.com
Here is the link.
I am really happy with the way these cards turned out.
Both cards next to each other....so different.
Card #1 Always Artichoke
Up close, see the results??? Cool huh?
Card #2 Bashful Blue/Crumb Cake
I was actually going for the blue/brown effect so I left out the green this time and love, love the way it turned out.
Up close of the blue/brown card.
Of course nothing does it justice as in real life, but believe me, it's gorgeous!!
