Today I was responsible for the tutorial over at The Cuttlebug Challenge. Please head over there and see it!! I'll wait for you to get back and show you my other example for today.
Hi again! I wanted to create a more masculine card to have on hand and for some reason the faux leather idea popped into my head the other morning as I was trying to catch a few more zzzz's. There are many variations on how to achieve this; here's a peek at what I came up with.
I started by running some light tan fun foam through my cuttlebug using the Paisley embossing folder. Then I took my Old Paper vintage ink pad and brushed it over the foam using the direct-to-paper method. I used a stipple brush to swirl on vintage photo covering most of the foam. I finished by adding Walnut Ink by pouncing it in just a few places as a highlight. Here it is all finished:
Since it was a masculine card, I wanted to keep it very simple. I stamped the cowboy image using Memento Brown directly on the fun foam. Some red string and a button to add some interest at the bottom and it was finished. I glued the fun foam panel to my red base using Tombow Mono Glue - in the bottle with the green cap.
View from a different angle. I hope you can see the texture. It's sooo cool looking in real life!!
And some close up shots.
That's it for me today! I am so thrilled that you stopped by. Let me know what you think of the embossing on fun foam. And if you try, please let me know where to find it as I'd love to see what you create!
Have a beautiful weekend! I hope to be popping back on here with some challenge cards!
