Hello friends. Still woefully behind in playing along with all the challenges from this past weekend's Stamp-a-faire over at Papertrey Ink, but plugging along and playing with Ashley's "leather" challenge. Did not have any glycerin, but tried it anyway, and it came out ok. The cardstock ended up being very fragile and I think the glycerin would have helped hold it together better, but it is what it is!
I made my card very CAS which is perfect for a masculine card anyway, and came up with this:
After my paper dried, I blended some Cocoa Bean ink lightly over it and then die cut it using the Mix & Mat: Postal die and then used Initial Sentiments: Birthday and Cocoa Bean ink to stamp the sentiment. I added a layer of Honey Nut cardstock to my card base and the "leather" layer to the top, and then finished with some wooden stars and a piece of twine.
