Artemio week: faux leather heart

Isa'sart is with us today with a beautiful tag and a technique, which is, as she says, not new, but it's always a winner... and it's always new to a few people.
Isa used our foamies, and she said, (I quote): "I really like the one you sell because it's thick and ideal for the faux leather effect."

So here are the foamies she used:

and the stamps

It's very easy to make the faux leather effet. Simply heat the foamie with your heat tool, stamp onto the foam when it's still warm, let it cool down and cut your shape. 
Then add a bit of ink, et voilĂ .
Isa's tip:
Use a sanding blog on the edges to give a more "leathery" look

Isa used the Artemio scrolls stamped on the label and embossed in gold on the tag.

To make her tag, Isa used:

Inks: DISTRESS Walnut - Brushed corduroy / VERSAFINE sepia / VERSAMAGIC Jumbo java
VERSAMARK and COSMIC SHIMMER gold embossing powder 

Don't forget...

  1. I'm never disappointed by Isa's projects and this is yet another beauty. Makes me want to rush out and buy foam. . . . !!
