This week in the Compendium of Curiosities challenge we were to try Tim Holtz's faux patina technique from p. 58 of his book. I used both versions of the technique on my card. The background is done with the faux patina technique. I also used the technique on the metal spinner and gears and on metal tape on the balloon sections. The stamps are all from Tim's Remnants set. I have to admit that I didn't expect such great results on the metal. I know Tim's was spectacular, but it seemed too easy to be true. I'll be doing this technique again!
