Challenge 253 Metal Patina

 Another week another challenge. I saw this technique on SCS and thought I would give it a try. I love how it turned out but it looks so much better in real life. The Happy Birthday panel is sprayed with smooch spray and shines real nice. I used brushed copper card stock to punch out a copper ribbon with the dotted ribbon border punch. That has been retired for years but I still have some and I thought it was perfect for this card. I needed three masculine cards for the month of June birthdays and this is just the ticket. I have  pictures of the other two which I will post very soon.
There is a tutorial at SCS for making the panel that looks like metal under Patina. I hope you give it a try too. It's pretty easy and quick and the results are dramatic. 
Thanks for stopping by At Paula's Place and if you have any questions email me or leave a comment.
