Wolf Masculine Card - challenge 108 For You

Another card for challenge 108 - masculine cards.  I woke up this morning early, and I immediately thought of a technique I had not tried for a long time - and would be perfect for a masculine card - the faux leather technique with masking tape.  I used a tutorial from Splitcoaststampers here  even though I thought I could remember the technique.

Stamps: In Wildness, Clearly for You
Inks: Soft Suede, More Mustard, Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso marker
Papers: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Elegant Soiree Designer Paper, Very Vanilla, Versa Mark Ink
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Ovals Die and Big Shot, Hodgepodge hardware, mat pack and piercing tool, masking tape, clear embossing powder.
A pattern was applied to the Crumb Cake layer using the Texturz Plate Kit #4.  Tip: I find spritzing the card stock with a little water prior to putting it through the Big Shot will result in a better pattern impression.  You'll need to let the card stock dry before attaching it to the card, but that doesn't take very long.

To make the faux leather panel I applied small pieces of making tape randomly to a piece of vanilla card stock (making sure to overlap them and leave no spaces) until the entire piece was covered.  Then I applied 3 colours of ink using sponges - first Soft Suede, followed by More Mustard, and then Crushed Curry.  The result was a little to light for the image I had in my head, so I applied Chocolate chip and I was happy.  Apply Versa Mark ink all over the panel, and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
