MAKING FAUX LEATHER with KRAFT CARDSTOCK

If you havent tried this... it is so much fun and truly magical !!

We will soon have a swap to make "Leather" covered Journal books - so please give this a try and experiment with different colored inks and embossing folders !  

The following is from the Crafters Companion UK Web Site :

When Sheena debuted her Faux Leather Technique on TV back in 2014, we were absolutely inundated with requests for more information on her demonstrations. The technique uses embossing folders, our Kraft card, Distress Ink pads and Spray & Shine to create a gorgeous effect that can be used to create book covers, card features and more!

The technique also uses glycerin, which you can pick up from a local pharmacist. Some of our customers have reported some success using washing-up liquid as a substitute for the glycerin, but we've not verified this. If you give this a try, please do let us know if it worked!

Below you'll find a video demonstrating the basic technique, along with a second video showing you how to put a book together once you've created the cover. You'll also find links to relevant products - the technique will work with any embossing folder.




The tutorial videos are also on YouTube from SHEENA DOUGLAS .


Here is a quick link to the web site with full tutorial pictures

Most any drug store has glycerin,(ask pharmacist if it is not on the shelf) and also where they have cake decorating supplies in craft stores you will usually find it for making fondant.
