Faux Verdigris

I had fun making this one.  The paper was aged using distress inks which I spritzed with water.  I freehand embossed the copper and then created the verdigris effect using acrylic paints, first adding a layer of black, letting it dry a bit and then wiping it off and then adding a further layer of light green and white (a bit of both, not mixed) by stippling it on, letting it partly dry again and then wiping it with a tissue.  The star is cut from Makin's Clay and I created the texture on it by pressing a piece of vintage lace into it.  I painted it black and added some metallic rub-on over the top.  I made the wire look rusty using Distress Embossing Powder.
