Step four:  Peel the backing off a Vintaj Foil Sheet and attach it to the chipboard paper.  Use the Key die and your cutting machine to die cut several keys.

Step five:  Use the Vintaj Patinas to paint the keys dark grey.  I mixed the black and white patinas to achieve a shade that was similar to the keys on the scrapbook paper I used.

Step six:  When the patina has dried, use the reliefing block to highlight the raised areas of the keys.  Glue the keys onto the frame as desired.
