I've been down with the flu or some other viral bug so I only have one card to share, but it is a beauty.  Another easy technique that will leave the your friends and family in awe of you and your talent.

Have you tried Faux Patina?  I LOVE IT,  your creations are vintage and so elegant.  and you can create many color combinations,  this is my favorite.


Take any embossing folder,  I used Tim Holtz, and inked it with Soft Suede, Stampin UP, run it through your machine, then I sponged Broken China and Peeled Paint (Tim Holtz) onto card.  Lastly take a dark brown, Early Espresso (Stampin UP) and sponge over.  Don't be afraid to add more of the blue if your card is too dark. Let dry.Then with VersaMark ink pad randomly stamp areas of your card and emboss with gold powder.  
Add your sentiment....  BEAUTIFUL!!!
