Today I was going to try the Faux Patina Technique, but got sidetracked and played with embossing folders instead. My results are on my blog.
The background on this card is one of the backgrounds I made while playing. It was done with a Darice EF, and uses Brilliance Sky Blue and Cosmic Gold, and Memento Bamboo Leaves.
I made matching mats for the cards by going around white CS with the same ink pads and my daubers.
The backing for the sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs Eternity Set, and the sentiment is from JustRite's Botanical Medallions and Banners Set. They were stamped on Core'dinations White Pearl CS using VersaMark, and Embossed with gold EP, then cut and embossed using ODBD's Elegant Ovals custom dies by Spellbinders. Then I edged them with a gold pen and mounted both layers dimensionally.
To finish the card, I punched some MS Monarch Butterflies, and used my daubers to add some blue to each. Last, I did the bodies and the edges with the gold pen. (It's shiny in real life). Then, I added some roses and foliage from the MS Branch Punch, and added a few pearls.
