Inspired by a Technique Challenge!
Today's technique challenge at Stampin' Addicts is Faux Suede. I've never done this technique before and I'm not sure I did it right, but I tried. All products from Stampin' Up!
Stamp sets: Inspired by Nature, Oval All (Occasions Mini)
Ink: Versmark, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive Markers: Always Artichoke, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Large oval punch, Scallop oval punch, Real Red grosgrain, Vanilla large grommet
For this technique you will stamp your image and then crumple up the paper. You will have to really work at it but then you will separate the layers of paper. After you separate the paper, you apply Versamark over the layer which leaves a little sheen to the raised areas.
