Faux Platinum Effect: Christmas Collectibles

Faux Platinum creates a very rich background.  It mixes together some rich tones of purple, turquoise and gold.  If you want to learn this awesome technique called “Faux Platinum”, come to my next Stamping Club night, Tuesday December 10, at 7:00pm!  

To make this card, I used the “Beautifully Baroque” embossing folder, sponged with Coastal Cabana, Rich Razzleberry, Always Artichoke and Early Espresso. Then, I stamped some stamps from “Gorgeous Grunge” set with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold powder.
