Butterfly Friends

I am sharing this card with you today showing a technique I had not done before called Faux Patina. I did not want a darker more usual patina, choosing instead greens and blues. I sponged my colours using Tim Holtz Distress Inks Evergreen Bough, Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio. And for the patina I used Copper Embossing Powder, which I also used on my sentiment die. I propped up the sentiment on foam dots, and to finish, I added my trademark sequins. I loved this done with just the inks, so I can see myself having another go at this using clear embossing powder. Thanks for taking a look, have a great day!
