VSN Technique - Faux Leather

Happy Monday!!  Today I'm showing a VSN card.  For the last VSN, the challenge I hosted required the use of the Faux Leather technique. There were a number of different ways to actually accomplish this.  I chose to use the masking tape technique that Beate created a tutorial for on SCS.  I have to say this was a lot of fun!!  I used a Taylored Expressions stamp set.  I made my faux leather using a scrap piece of cardstock I had on my table.  I ripped up the masking tape in little pieces and placed them on the cardstock randomly but making sure to cover the whole piece.  Then I covered the masking tape with color by using direct to paper with several different inks. I stamped the cover of the wagon on the scrap paper and cut it out.  Then I punched the star out of the same scrap.  I adhered the wagon cover onto another stamped image of the wagon (paper pieced).  I really love the way it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
