TIN TILE IN FAUX PATINA WITH COUNTRY HOME - November 2018

Hi, Stampers!
   You were warned - more Country Home!  I hope you can see the beautiful copper patina on the Tin Tile piece on this card.  I CAS'd the technique (although it's an old one) from France Martin on YouTube, "Patina Technique."  Thanks for bringing this technique back to life, Frenchy!  Let's get started.


  A quick email to me will get you a FREE printable Project Sheet!

Happy Stampin’!
