I squished up the Hazelnut Tan back panel and then smoothed it out and rubbed my Adirondack Ginger Pad over the creases to get a faux leather look. I stamped over it with the Crackled stamp from Background Fun. Next, I tattered the edges by rubbing a butter knife back and forth. I sponged on Ginger around the edges. The blue and focal panel are from a Premium Paper Pack. I stamped the images on the blue and the newsprint panels in Ginger and tattered those edges. The focal panel was just one color. I used a sanding block to lighten areas. I stamped on the horse and cacti with Adirondack Espresso. I stamped in the texture background with Ginger.
