2016 Christmas Stampin' Up! Faux Patina

Welcome to another Christmas card post where we step up the card with a technique call Faux Patina.  I have showcased this technique before and thought it nice to try for Christmas.

The card base is Soft Suede and the featured Faux Patina piece was created on Very Vanilla, embossed with Holly and  sponged over with Crumb Cake, Tip Top Taupe and a touch of Real Red and Old Olive.

I discovered this technique a couple of years ago at TooCoolStamping and have posted a number of posts using this technique - too see more just enter Faux Patina in the search tool to the left of the screen and you will get a listing of 6 previous posts.
