This card uses the Faux Leather technique on the Bashful Blue cardstock:
I crumpled the cardstock, uncrumpled it and then gently worked some more creases into the cardstock with my fingers....bending and creasing here and there. I placed the cardstock on a piece of scrap paper, then took my Bashful Blue ink and started swiping and rubbing the ink directly onto the cardstock until I got the look I wanted.
I didn't have the color I wanted in grosgrain, so I took a piece of white grosgrain ribbon and held it down on the Mellow Moss pad with my finger and ran the ribbon under my finger. I did this a few times on each side until I got the color intensity that I wanted.

This is absolutely beautiful. I love what you did with the faux leather technique! The color scheme is beautiful. I have a really hard time with the Lexicon of Love set, but what you did with it here is really great. Great job!
