I'm always on the lookout for new-to-me techniques! They're a great way to build up your 'techniques toolbox' and get out of a creative rut. So when I recently learned a technique to create a leather-like look on a card, I couldn't wait to try it!
I'd been waiting for an excuse to play with the Newton's Nook Newton Rides West stamp set. This set seemed perfect for masculine cards. Paired with the new technique I learned, I came up with this:
I repeated the leather effect technique with a second piece of cardstock and die cut the letters for my sentiment from it. The WPlus9 Folk Art Alphabet die actually works perfectly for a 'Wanted' poster-style look! Some dimensional glue to add the letters and the wood veneer stars and I was all done!
I'd love to hear what you think of this card. Is there someone you know who'd love to receive it? Thanks for stopping by!
