ORNAMENT KEEPSAKES MEETS FAUX PATINA!

While at the Creative Convention, fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Angie Leach, had a great presentation on the Faux Patina technique.  I fell in love!  Tonight at our Demo Diva shoebox swap I will be sharing this technique.  Here is the card we are going to make.

Technically Patina is a green or brown film on the surface of bronze or similar metals, produced by oxidation over a long period.  Simply put, oxidized metal.  "Faux Patina" is an oxidized metal look, and since it is "Faux" it can be many different colors (not just green or brown).  When doing this technique, you sponge ink (in several different colors) over your dry-embossed image, and then sponge lightly with VersaMark Ink in certain areas, sprinkle with Metallic Embossing Powder and heat emboss (using your heat tool).  The heat embossing with the Metallic Embossing Powder is what gives it the metal look.  This is a "quick" explanation of the technique.  If you are not lucky enough to be one of the awesome Demo Divas attending the Shoebox Swap tonight in the Rubber Room, on October 29th, I will be demonstrating this technique for my Technique Tuesday class.  You can visit the link below to get all the class details.  If you are not a Demo Diva, but would love to be one, use the link below to join my Stampin' Up! downline family and become a Rubber Room Rambler.  

You cannot really appreciate this technique from this photo, but where it appears to be stamped in Crumb Cake (like the sentiment), it is actually embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.  It is much prettier than this in real life, I assure you. 

For this card I used the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set and Framelits and the sentiment is from Calm Christmas, which is available in the Holiday Mini Catalog.
