Faux Leather Tag

Hi Everyone................Hope you had a lovely weekend and the weather has improved for those of you who have been experiencing extreme  conditions. 

My mum told me about the Sheena Douglas faux leather technique and I loved the Note Books that she made HERE, so I just had to have a play. 

I took a Ranger Manila Tag, size 8 and treated the tag as per Sheena's instructions, which you can find on her video on You Tube HERE

I also cut out some images etc from Tim Holtz Lost and Found Paper Stash and some Idea-ology trinkets 

It really does look like leather and you can use an embossing folder of your choice.  I used the Sizzix Bigshot to emboss one of Tim's folders,  but please be careful if you use electric  equipment/embosser as there may be some liquid residue when applying pressure. 

Take Care and Catch up soon. I will be back on Tuesday with my DT make for Craft Room Challenge
