MFP Stamps Challenge 15

MFP Stamps Challenge 15
Technique Challenge - use TUTORIAL
(Faux Patina)

Here's my sample card as a design team member for Mark's Finest Papers! Thanks for looking and head on over to JOIN IN the challenge fun!
I followed the technique to create my card.
Go figure. hehe. I used a pasley embossing
folder and sponged on some green and deep
purple inks. Then I added VersaMark, as
stated in tutorial, and then gold embossing
powder and heat set. I die cut a fancy oval and
sponged on some of the same deep purple ink.
I attached all my layers. I stamped my lily, using
VersaMark and heat embossed that in gold
too. I colored the image using the same
background inks and a blender pen. I
touched up a bit of the color using my Copics.
Once completed I cut it out and raised it
up using mounting tape and that was it.
Thanks for looking and be sure to join
in the Challenge!!

I used MFP stamp set
