Faux Suede and Lovely as a Tree

Good Morning and Happy Monday! Lynn over on Splitcoast came up with a cool techniuqe for us to try out today. It's called Faux Suede! All you do is take your piece of cardstock and using a bone folder, distress your card over and over and over until the fibres start to break down, they you just peel it apart (if you've distressed the card enough, it just peels apart easily). It looks great when you're done!

I teamed it up with Lovely as a Tree. Here's a trick for you, spritz your watercolour paper first, then stamp your image with classic ink and you get this 'washed out' look. I like it!!! I think it would be a great masculine card.

Stamps : Lovely as a Tree
Cardstock : Old Olive, Soft Suede, Watercolour Paper
Ink : Soft Suede
Accessories : Choc Chip 1 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Bone Folder
