Speedy's Challenge #13, Masculine, faux, woodgrain!

Hello, I combined 3 challenges for this one,

Speedy's Friends #13 masculine
DTGD10justwritedesigns01, just faux you
WT281 wonderful woodgrain

The card base is old olive edges sponged. The faux woodgrain is chocolate chip embossed with the distressed strips EF and then I rubbed the chocolate chip ink pad across it and sponged the edges.

The faux leather is creamy caramel, edges distressed, then I crumpled the whole thing up. It's rubbed with creamy caramel and more mustard ink. I also added faux stitching with a fine tip marker. The faux brads are 1/4" circles covered with crystal effects.

I used a pinking circles nestie in so saffron for the focal area, edges sponged. I stamped this with the grass from Inspired by nature. The bullrushes were made using the slot punch.

The frog/toad is from a Mark's Finest Papers set called "Speedy the cats Friends" I stamped him on wite and coloured with copics. He's popped up.

Have a Great day!
