This background technique will make you happy, happy, happy

Angie Leach, a fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator 
was the subject of my artist spotlight
on one of my blogs
see her post here

Angie's technique is also the subject for this

Twisted Challenge 07 - Faux Patina

Here is my card

How did I give this  Technique a Twist
I wet the cardstock, inked it
let it dry, embossed it
then inked it again
following her directions.

You can't see it n my sample but the versamark ink
really gave this background a beautiful shine on the raised flowers.

Thanks in advance for your comments
and Thanks Angie 
for sharing your idea with all of us!

May God bless you and your family,
Sherrill Graff

Gorgeous! I think blues, greens, & yellows just blend together so well! I'm going to have to try wetting the cardstock first. Great twist & the background looks almost like a window sheet with the shininess. Thanks for joining us at The Technique Twist! :)
