I was very excited to try this technique...I love the look of patina..it has such a vintage feel to it. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with my background but after I made it and went to bed...well, I must have dreamt this card cuz I had an idea right away. I borrowed one idea that Angela (ArizonaMaine) used on one of her recent cards..that being using two Fleur de Lis nesties and combining them to make a rectangle. It turned out beautifully...I'll use that again..thanks Angela!. I wanted to add more "metal" to this in addition to the faux patina so I cut my flower bg and vine from a copper star dream paper. I also added copper gel highlights to the teal flower.
