This weeks  “From the Archives Tutorial” was Faux Leather with Masking Tape. It was a challenge at the VSN last week and I thought I better give the tutorial a make-over before that.

Masking tape was adhered to a 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of white cardstock, sponged with Vintage Photo Distress ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. A 2″ x 4 11/16″ strip of October Afternoon Campfire paper was ahdered over it before the layers were stitched to a  3/16″ bigger piece of white cardstock. Linen thread was wrapped around the horizontal layer and was topped with an October Afternoon button. Two more OA buttons were stitched to the top left screen, along with a button from my Mom’s creation.

The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps set Back in the Saddle. It was stamped in Brilliance Coffee Bean ink on white cardstock. It was cut and embossed with a classic Circle Nestabilities die. The center was sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink. The rodeo cowboy image from the same set was stamped in the center of the circle with Antique Linen ink. The image was layered on a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, cut and embossed with a Beaded Circle Nestabilities die.

The layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 1/4  x 11″ piece of Sno cone cardstock . A border was paper pierced around the image layers.

Here is a video for the visual learner:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
