This is my friend Marge's swap for our stamping club. She doesn't think her cards are "good enough" to make her own gallery! Can you imagine? Anyways, I warned her I would upload it for her, so here it is! (I told you I would do it :)
By the way, this is just BEAUTIFUL in person, looks like leather!

My friend Diane is sneaky..but this is fun. I got this effect by stamping the deer on white cs, spritzing with walnut stain ink, crumpling the wet cardstock, uncrumpling and hitting the high spots with Tim Holtz's Walnut Stain Distress Ink Pad. Then I ironed it with my little craft iron (girls and their toys!)and finished it with product from Delta called Tea Dye Varnish. This really gave it the look of old leather. I love Tim Holtz's approach and have his DVD which I recommend to anyone wanting to work outside the box. Thank you for your kind remarks. I may post again now that I know this doesn't hurt:)
