This month’s technique is Faux Suede. Seriously, I don’t know how Nicole keeps finding fun techniques I’ve never tried before, but she does.
For this technique, you curl your paper with your bone folder until you can separate the layers of the cardstock. I used Soft Suede cardstock for my faux suede because, well, it’s Soft Suede. 🙂
After pulling apart the layers, I tore a little off the bottom and then used a blending brush to add some Early Espresso ink to show off the texture. I even pulled out my new pastels to color the image. I was going for a distressed kind of look since it went with the faux suede, in my opinion.
