Hello peeps! I'm back with another card, this was made following Merry Monday #97 - use white, aqua, and silver on your card. Here's what I came up with:

Here is the finished inside:

Oooh! Shimmery and shiny! I custom made that aqua panel using Jessi Fogan's Faux Faux Patina tutorial. This is my second attempt at it, and I must say, it's quite addictive! The panel is adhered to a slightly larger piece of silver glitter paper then adhered to the card base with foam squares. The sentiment was stamped in Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I thought it needed a little something more, so I traced over it with a versamarker and heat embossed it with clear EP. (Although it's really hard to see it. Trust me. It's embossed!) Another strip of the panel and another stamp finishes the inside.

(one more view!)

If you want to have fun with ink, glimmer mists and embossing powder, then you NEED to try this faux faux patina! You won't be disappointed!

Ok, that's it for now. Perhaps I should get some housework done. My house looks like a tornado went through it! LOL! Thanks for stopping by! Stay crafty my friends!
