I've tried this technique before without having a name for it, so when Faux Tarnished Silver was the featured tutorial today I thought I'd give it another go. It always fascinates me how it looks a bit different each time.
A2 black base. I used a pearlescent cream card for everything else except the image panel, which is just a scrap of old wrinkle-free distress with heavy sponging.
Panels are matted on black, large one embossed with Swiss Dots, small one with Birds and Vines.
WSD image stamped with Versafine black and coloured with distress inks, Liquid Pearls and Stickles added to the flowers, Glossy Accents to the birds. Sponging is Antique Linen.

this is adorable....great job with that new technique., or new to some of us..:0). Love your matching layers and the sponging. The all one color is so pretty and the cute little leaves are a perfect little touch...TFS..:0)

This is a great card with so much happening yet so softly applied.
