This is the project I created this week.
I used the digital stamp The Bride from The Paper Shelter. I colored the image using my Spectrum Noir markers.
You can see the tutorial on the Faux Patina technique that I originally learned it from HERE.
Now I didn't have the colors she used in her tutorial but instead I used Stampin' Up Baked Brown Sugar, Tempting Turquoise, and Old Olive. I also used Ranger Distressed ink, Frayed Burlap.
To start with I rubbed Baked Brown Sugar onto my embossing folder and then ran it through my Big Shot.
Then I sponged Tempting Turquoise and Old Olive over the surface being a little sporadic with where I sponged. I continued to go over it until I felt I had the coloring I wanted.
Then I sponged Frayed Burlap over the cardstock to darken it and give it a more antiqued look.
Now this is where I lack in patience. You can either wait for it to dry or do as I did and give it a good blast with your heat gun. I then rubbed my Embossing Buddy over the entire surface to attempt to make sure it was dry. With my Versamark stamp pad, I rubbed it light over the surface in random areas and then embossed it with Gold Metallic embossing powder to give it a little more of a metal look.
The pictures aren't the best due to my LED lamp I use on my crafting station, but I hope you enjoyed today's technique and would love to see your creations if you choose to try this technique. Simply leave a comment with a link to your creation.
