This is my creation for the Vintage Swap I am participating in at Convention with Martha Lucia Gomez. The background technique is called Faux Patina and it is basically several layers of sponged ink over the Vintage Wallpaper Embossed Very Vanilla Cardstock. Then I light rubbed Versamark over the cardstock and sprinkled Gold Embossing Powder over it and heat embossed it. This created an aged metal look which is perfect for a vintage card! I used the En Francais for the smaller background in Crumb Cake and used the Artistic Etchings stamp set as my focal point. I thread Linen Thread through the Crochet Trim to create the gathered look and finished the card off with an Antique Brad and Basic Pearl!
