On a black surface (I used chipboard die cuts painted with black soot), apply Distress Emboss and emboss with gold embossing powder. Ink surface again with the emboss and sprinkle here and there with clear UTEE, heat with Tim's heat gun. When cool, run paint dauber lightly over surface.

Heart element from Grungeboard set, inked with Distress pad reds, glossy accents, rock candy clear glitter.

Faux Patina:

On any metal surface (can even do on non metal).
Aluminum tape on mat board die cuts embossed with Swiss Dots.
Drops of ink (Pesto, Pool, Sailboat Blue, Lettuce, Espresso. Lock has Butterscotch and Key has Caramel.)
Then drop Snow Cap mixative. Pounce with felt tool.
I edged with Zig black and hit high points with Distress pad Black Soot, wiping off excess. attached to tag with silver brads.
