Faux Leather Technique

I saw a faux leather technique and needed a swap card this week, so thought I would give it a try.  Instead of creating my own embossing lines, just used an embossing folder.  Embossed a piece of craft card stock and used the back of it, so the lines are dented in, rather than raised up.  Debossed!!!!   I really liked the coloring that Sharon Fields used, so I went with those same Stampin' Up! classic ink colors of More Mustard, Pumpkin Spice, Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip.  Sponge patches of these colors all over the card avoiding pressing in the lines.

Here is the link to the original tutorial!!!  Thanks to Sharon for sharing it!!!!  Great color combination!

Wanted to focus mainly on the technique, so didn't add much, but I've added some Stampin' Up! punch pieces and faux brads using Crystal Effects to make them shiny.  The words are a SU Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp.

We are always looking for masculine cards and this is a great technique to add to those!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy every day!!!
