This is the swap card I received from Cindy for our technique swap. She used the Faux Patina technique for the back ground. I love the look. First she applied Crumb Cake Classic ink to the embossing folder then embossed a piece of vanilla card stock. Then she sponged some areas with Marina Mist, Always Artichoke and Early Espresso. Went over the whole thing with an embossing buddy to take up any moisture then dabbed a Versa Mark pad in some random spots and embossed with gold embossing powder. I'm anxious to try this technique. It would make a cool background for a masculine card.
