Faux Leather Techniqe

I was looking on Pinterest for something and came across this technique called faux leather.  You take a piece of fun foam and heat it with your heat gun until it starts to curl.  You then immediately stamp it firmly with your stamp that has been inked up with Stazon ink and hold a few seconds.  Because the foam is soft from being heated, it presses the image in and makes it look like tooling.  Going over the piece with Distress Ink and a sponge applicator makes it really look like leather.  I used a couple of Unity Stamps to try out the technique and love how it looked.
