Stamp-A-Fair 2017 ~ Leather with Ashley

Hello~  Ashley has a great video on how to use brown cardstock and make it look like faux leather.  I was hesitant to try it because I didn't have any glycerin so I didn't know if the technique would work but it did and I love the results!
I was hoping the opportunity would arise for me to use the new Kind Of Corny set.  I LOVE it!! (insert singing voice here)  I got a bit impatient for my leather to dry so I ended up using a flat iron on it.  Worked like a charm!
Look how awesome that "leather" looks!  I added just a bit of Gathered Twigs distress Ink to bring out the wrinkles.  I used the same sentiment from Year Of Psalms August that Ashley used because it is just perfect with the corn.
I've been enjoying seeing some amazing projects out there and have tried to keep up with commenting but time has gotten the best of me and all I can say is YOU ARE ALL WINNERS in my book!

If you've taken the time to stop in and visit and left me a comment, I thank you so much.  Your thoughtfulness means more than you know.  It's a busy time for all of us who are trying to keep up.

See you at the InLinkz!  Blessings ~ Birgit
