Faux Leather

Ways to Use It #148
Here is a great challenge to use Liquid Applique to your cards and have the look of leather.
I created this Faux leather background for a masculine card. The Wanted set seems to be a perfect choice. I love the feel of it after it was done. Here is how you do this technique: Squeeze the liquid applique into your paper and determine the size of paper that you need. I smoothed the liquid with my finger, seems to work better than any gadget there is. Stamp the image you want and then used a Heat Gun to popped the applique, and done.
RECIPE:
Stamps: Wanted, So Many Sayings
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, DSP Outlaw
Ink: Basic Black, Creamy Caramel
Accessories: Brads, Chocolate Grossgrain Ribbon
Tools: Cutter's Kit for distressing

Hi, Chat,

I totally want "Wanted" and must make that a priority in '08! I talked myself out of it last year thinking I wouldn't use it as much as other sets! The faux leather is perfect; love your card!!!
