masculine card

I was looking at my new technique junkie newsletter and found this really cool technique called: snakeskin... When I saw this I thought of my shirt and beer mug from flourishes. I used glossy card-stock and sponged three different colors of ink, lightest to darkest, ink that look like a skin. Then when ink is wet I coated in clear embossing powder. Before I was to heat I made horizontal lines then vertical lines with my bone folder then I heated ... wow does my shirt look like a snakeskin?

Very cool technique. That is the favorite one I saw in the new TJN, but I haven't tried it yet. I love that you used it on a shirt.
