This was a technique on splitcoaststampers.com recently, and I thought it would be fun for technique class Thursday. It’s called “Faux Patina.” (And for those of your who play Words with Friends or another online Scrabble game, “Faux” would be a great word to play, especially if you hit a double or triple word score!)

I used the same ink colors as the tutorial on splitcoast. Why reinvent the wheel, right? Sign up for my technique class (Thursday, May 3, 10 a.m.) and you’ll learn this and another technique, and create a project with one of the techniques. More information is on my web site, and you can RSVP there.
Have a great day!
