Faux Leather

Today was the last day of the season for card class. Booo!  Last year I hung out with these lovely ladies once a month, learned new techniques, and of course spent money!  Unfortunately this year I could only go a few times due to work, but just had to make it to the last class before summer hit.

 Today's project, which was taught by our usual crafting Goddess, Shirley, was a father's day card with faux leather.   Here is a link to Splitcoaster's tutorial if you are interested in trying it out.   This class was super fun because just like Shirley had been wanting to try this technique out for many years, so have I.  I even had the purchased the masking tape long ago and just this past weekend noticed it and realized I hadn't even removed it from the wrapper.  Typical crafting hoarder over here. LOL.

The lion was colored with my aqua painter and the grass was colored in with SU marker.

I was also excited to get home so I could use an embossing folder with animal print on the red cardstock so as it has not been used yet.  What a great day!
