Hey... this looks like yesterday's card. That's right, same sketch!
Yes, the faux suede technique has been around about as long as I've been stamping but I still like it! Especially with the Happy Trails set. I see horses and I can almost smell the leather. I really like doing the liquid applique on a dark cardstock though. It gives that ripped edge lots of appeal.
(Lately I've been thinking the yellow liquid applique would look interesting as a coloring element on a little chick. Hmmm.....)
