Technique Twist Challenge 07 - Faux Patina Technique

The Technique Twist is back with a great challenge: Faux Patina!!! The Fabulously Twisted Design Team paired up with Angie Leach, a fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator as she has this fantastic tutorial on the Faux Patina Technique!  Stop by, check out her tutorial, & all of her amazing creations! :)

I went a little funky with the Faux Patina & used bright colors - Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, & Melon Mambo, then went over the whole thing with Illuminate.  (Normally blues, greens, & browns are used as well as gold in traditional patinas.)  I use Pewter Embossing Powder & then sponged over again with Melon Mambo.  I punched out some Pansy's then clipped off a petal for a butterfly.

Come check out the rest of the Fabulously Twisted Design Team's creations & then link up your own Faux Patina at The Technique Twist!

These are wonderful. What a good idea to do the Faux Patina in an embellishment instead of a background. :)
