Alisa's Cyberstamp Challenge 3 - Faux Suede
The third challenge of Alisa's for the night is Faux Suede.
Check out HERE for a tutorial for this technique.
Basically curl a piece of cardstock between your thumb and your bone folder as if you were curling ribbon. Curl it in all directions until you see the corners start to separate. Stick your thumb nails between the two layers and slowly pull them apart. If you meet some resistance, curl your cardstock again. The more you work your cardstock, the easier it will separate.
The inside is the 'faux suede'.
I used Chocolate Chip cardstock for the Faux Suede and used it as a frame for the Pocket Silhoettes stamp.
Another new technique to try!
