Shopping Our Stash #145

Happy April! Time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash!  This time we want you to break out your technique stash and make something "faux"….yeah, I was stumped too, but I found this great tutorial that saved my day!!

First off I used this adorable new image from Sylvia at Wee Stamps.  I printed her on kraft card stock and colored her with Prismacolor pencils.
I used papers from my stash from MME (probably my favorite company for paper).  My only embellishments are the pearls in the corners.
 Here's the inside with a generous writing panel.
And here is my faux technique.  I made faux patina on the "banner" behind the image.  Too bad my image was so big it covered up most of it because it really did turn out pretty good.  I followed the tutorial in the link above.  Her instructions were very good. (thankfully, cuz I am not a technique junkie and I was a bit stumped!)

So now its your turn to wow us with your faux abilities!

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,
