Twisted Challenge 07 - Faux Patina
I had to give some thought to how to twist up this week's challenge from The Technique Twist of Faux Patina. I have never tried this one before. So I watched the video the ladies suggested.
I twisted the technique by using crisp cantaloupe for my base and using different colors for the flowers and stems and leaves. I used crumb cake on my embossing folder, then sponged on crisp cantaloupe and then calypso coral onto my flowers. For the leaves and stems I used wild wasabi, then garden green. I then sponged on early espresso over the whole piece. Dabbed on some versamark and gold embossing powder and heat set it. I am fairly happy with my faux patina panel except for the gold. I got a little too heavy with it and also have some places where the corner of the versamark pad shows up too much. But remember this is my first one!
I layered my faux patina panel onto some wild wasabi and wrapped some calypso coral ribbon around that and added a couple of candy dot brads in the calypso coral. Then adhered the panel to a crisp cantaloupe card base.
Thanks for stopping by!
