Are you ready to learn how to make the Faux Patina with the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder? If you like antique, vintage I bet you will give this a try.
I have the how to video at the bottom of this post or you can view on my YouTube Channel.
Colors for sponging
I bet looking at the front of the card you wouldn’t guess that started with white. Well I sure did and then sponging all these 3 colors to get a great effect of the faux patina. This is NOT a typo yes I started with white. Inside the card it is Very Vanilla but the front I started with white.
The colors for sponging are: Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake. The card stock for the layer it is Mint Macaron but the sponging I used Pool Party.
- Card Base Crumb Cake or Early Espresso 11 x 4¼ score at 5½
- Mint Macaron 5¼ x 4
- Whisper White Thick 5-1/8 x 4-1/8 emboss with folder, 2¼ x ¾
- Very Vanilla 5¼ x 4 *emboss with the Parisian Flourish folder about 1½ inch at the bottom
Step by step for the faux patina
- Emboss the whisper white thick cardstock with the Parisian Flourish 3D Folder.
- Randomly sponge Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake.
- Using the VersaMark ink pad, tap directly on the emboss and sponge card stock.
- Sprinkle copper embossing powder all over the inked cakdstock. (I suggest to see video)
- Heat Emboss
- Voila you have your Faux Patina!
Above picture you can see how lovely the embossing look at the bottom of the insert. Note that the front of the card we started with white and inside I use Very Vanilla. Vanilla look much better with this vintage card for the inside.
