When I started playing with my Bronc Buster set I thought how wonderful it would be to have some sort of leather as a background. I didn't have any leather DSP or anything that even remotely resemblered leather so I started to search for an alternative. I stumbled across the Faux Leather technique. This is a technique using masking tape to create your background. I experimented with various shades of ink to get differnt looks. I am really happy with how these cards turned out. I,myself like the blue one, but hubby and the boys prefer the red. Which one do you prefer???
The DSP on these cards is the Western Sky DSP from Stampin' Up! I used this paper on the previous Bronc Buster cards I made. It just matches the theme of this set so well and the colors are just perfect for masculine cards.
