Here is another card using my new Elvis stamps ... this card is for the challenge I do with my fab/sassy friends on SCS ... our challenge this week was to create a card which used some sort of "faux" technique .... I decided to do the faux leather technique.
This is quite an easy technique to do ... all you need is masking tape ... tear it into pieces and attach it to your card overlapping as you go ... once you have covered your whole card you then can color the background using your ink pads ... I used a variety of distress inks to create mine. A tip ... let the ink dry a little on the masking tape before you rub off your excess ... this will give you a darker look. I also like to start with a slightly larger card that I need and cut it down to size when I have finished the technique.
The layout here is another SFYTT sketch from Iheart2stamps blog. I colored Elvis' jacket using my new gold spica pen I received on Monday ... it gives it a great glittery look in real life.
