My club members loved making the Faux Patina last year and requested it again. I saw the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder and I knew I had to use it for the technique!
It’s pretty simple and you get inky fingers too! You start with using the Crumb Cake ink pad and pouncing it on the side of the Tin Tile embossing folder that has the Stampin’ Up! information on it. Run a piece of Very Vanilla through with the EF using the Big Shot. Then you will take Daubers and rub in a circular motion around the card. Random areas work best. I used the following order for the ink pads: Balmy Blue, Mossy Meadow, Soft Suede, then Versa Mark. You want to use the pad of the Versa Mark and drag lightly. I then covered it with Copper Embossing Powder and used the Heat Tool.
I would love to see your Faux Patina creations! Just add in the comments!
