Technique Tuesday

Well, it's Tuesday and I just happen to have a technique ready for you! I'm trying really hard this year to get these techniques done quicker. I know many of you use them in your classes. It's usually a couple of months after the technique pages are complete that it comes out in the web store on CD. Later this week set 3 should be available on CD. But onto set 4 pages!

This is another form of leather. Or should I say "Faux Leather?" It's called "Faux Leather II." Yes, there is more than one way to make "Faux Leather!"

This technique is easy to do but a bit messy. You need craft inks and because they take longer to dry you can manipulate the colors. And sometimes in doing that you get very inky fingers (as you will with this technique). I do like the looks of it when it is done and I think it can really enhance a masculine card.

I used the new Stampin' Up! "Motorcycle" stamp for this card. I just stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink, sponged the edges and layered it with Chocolate Chip card stock. It was a very simple card to make and it has a VERY masculine look to it. It can be used as a Father's Day card as well.

I really like this stamp. Hubby and I ran across a photo of his father on a motorcycle and I thought this stamp would be fun to play with on a scrapbook page using that photo. Maybe stamping maltiple images of it for the background using a light color ink. Not sure but when I get the time to work on that page I know I will be using this stamp.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Guys are so hard to make cards for. This is an awesome card.

I think stamping multiple images of that stamp for the background will make a fantastic page.
