Back in my comfort zone today with a bit of Faux Leather. This has been made using Sheena Douglas’ Faux Leather technique transforming Kraft card into fab leather like material.
For this project I have created the faux leather panel and then run it through the Cuttlebug with the Crafts Too tree embossing folder. I then allowed to dry completely – in fact I put it aside and came back to it another day so I was not tempted to work on it too early!
It has a lovely rough texture to it so perfect to add Distress Inks to as you know it will catch on the texture.
I’ve used only two colours – Peeled Paint – a shade of green around the outside with Cut n Dry Foam and then with the ink pad directly to the card over the tree
and Dusty Concord (purple) applied with the foam again behind the tree which gives it this sorty of misty appearance.
Then a simple black mount and onto a 5×7 card blank. So if you are tempted to try the Faux Leather technique but don’t want to make notebook covers… why not use it on your cards or in your scrapbooks instead!
