FM199 Faux Patina

Tara has a challenge for us this week, using the embossed embossing technique, on the Friday Mashup.

I took the technique a little bit further, using acrylic distress and sponge distress, to create a really vintage-looking background piece.  By adding various colors to age the piece, and then adding gold embossing, it gives a faux patina look.

Here you can see the nice gold embossing on the raised areas.
