and here is my inspiration card for you. There are plenty of faux techniques to be found on You Tube and also on Splitcoast Stampers. Here is just a selection that I found.
Stitching, marbling, buttons, metal, tarnished silver, washi tape, patina, crazed porcelain, tiles, brads,silk and glass. All made using faux methods.
For my card I have used faux stitching made with a die cut by Diesire called 'Fancy Stitched Edges.
I have gone with a gate fold design this time another shape I have not used in a while. The base card is made from cream cardstock and a creamy yellow card which I used the faux stitching on. The image is by Hunkydory from their Little book of 'Vintage Lace'. As the image is quite thin I glued to heavier white card stock before cutting out using my Xcut Rectangle Parenthesis.
The butterfly is a rub on transfer by Royal Langnickel, very easy to apply using the enclosed stick to smooth it down onto the card. The cream organza ribbon for the tie came from my stash as did the inside of the card.
This is a panel of faux leather that I had left over from when I showed the technique to a local craft group and we made faux leather note books using the excellent You Tube tutorial by Sheena Douglas
I coloured the leather ( which had previously been embossed using a butterfly ef ) with distress inks in 'Antique Linen' and then 'Wild Honey' . Added some snippets from the faux stitching panels top and bottom and then added a faux stitching line down each side using a Tattered Lace diecut.
Hope you will come and play along.
