Tutorial Time on Speedy TV # 12

Hello everyone and Happy Friday!  I hope you have a great weekend planned.  Lots of stuff going on in my town as we are celebrating our High School's 100 year Birthday!!! 

It's time for another fun tutorial today at Tutorial Time on Speedy TV.  This week Pat Gavin is showing us how to do a "Faux Patina" technique.  I absolutely LOVE how this turned out!!!  It is such a pretty way to add detail to your card!   I did a Christmas theme on my card using the "Faux Patina" and "Christmas Greetings" stamp set from Marks Finest Paper a Heinrich Company.

I stamped my image on vellum and mounted it on top of pink cardstock.  I cut the tag and snowflakes with the pink also.  I punched out vellum snowflakes and added a pearl button on top.

I hope to see your cards this week! If you post them at Tutorial Time on Speedy TV you have a chance to win this cute stamp set. If you use stamps from one of Marks Finest you will be entered into the drawing twice.
