Faux Patina

Following a tutorial on SplitCoast Stampers, I did this Faux Patina technique. I quite like how it turned out but, I think I need more practice, so you may see another one of these soon :)

I used all SU! paper, ribbon and pearls(thanks Alison), Prima flowers and leaves, and Fiskars punch. The pearls are coloured with a Gold Krylon pen and the flowers and leaves are edged with it too. I think the card is actually prettier in real life :) not quite so dark. When I do the technique again, I would like to see more blues. An embossing folder that had more 'blank' space may be better too....

Thanks for coming to look :)
