Ink Blocks Indians
Here is the same image done using different Distressed Embossing Powder (by Ranger) finishes. This embossing powder has a dull finish and feels sandy to the touch. Perfect for the carved look of these stamps.
The brown background on the left is a leather look gift wrap. I love using this gift wrap for backgrounds and accents on masuline and woodsy type cards.
Please note the faux snakeskin strip. A short tut for creating this paper can be found in an earlier post on this blog.
Finishing touches for the design are sponging in black around the card base on the leather look gift wrap, around the Indian image and the faux leather strip.
On this card the background attached to the card base is again gift wrap. There is sponging with dark brown ink around the card base, and the Indian image. The faux snakeskin strip is layered onto dark brown cardstock.
