Faux Leather

Whilst my pal Sassie was staying with me, I taught her how to make faux leather:  We mainly used Crafter's Companion embossing folders as demonstrated by Sheena Douglass.

We used mainly Distress inks, apart from the owl card, which had a bit more added to the inked faux leather (see details on that further down)

Our complete selection of makes

Using leaf vein embossing folder and a steam punk stencil

Wood grain embossing folder

Swirly embossing folder (forget make) and basic faux leather without any embossing

Basket Weave embossing folder

Pebbles embossing folder

Owl Card
The owl card was made using the leaf vein embossing folder faux leather, which was then painted with green/blue, blue/green, yellow/green and precious gold Pebeo DYNA iridescent paints.   The owl made from a piece of the woodgrain embossed faux leather, and was painted with a mixture of golds in same paints and then die cut with a Joanna Sheen Owl die.
