**For the Pumpkin Photo Inspiration Challenge click here. Thanks!**
This evening I used the Pumpkin Photo as color inspiration for this Give Thanks Faux Patina Card. I embossed a Whisper White piece of cardstock with the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder by Stampin' Up!. Before embossing I inked the embossing folder with Crumb Cake to give the background a little color. Then I sponged on the following colors:
- Cajun Craze
- Marina Mist
- Perfect Plum
- Pumpkin Pie
The final step was heat embossing the gold to give it the Faux Patina look. Here is a link to a tutorial if you like step by step instructions. The sentiment strip was made with white cardstock and then I sponged on a light layer of Crumb Cake ink before I heat embossed the sentiment in gold. The final touch was two antique brads and I used dimensionals between the Cajun Craze and Perfect Plum layers behind the sentiment. I'm really happy with the way this card turned out and it's definitely prettier in person. The photo doesn't show the detail of the gold. Well, it's getting late and I have a long day tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific night and pleasant tomorrow.
