I received a few requests today for instructions on how to do faux leather with fun foam. I didn't want to reinvent the wheel, so I just searched around until I found someone else's instructions. HERE they are. I did not do the last two steps on today's card, but I have sponged the edges in dark brown in the past and thinks it adds a lot to the "leathery" look.
I also came across a blog where white foam was used, and then it was sponged after the embossing was done. I think I am going to have to try that one, since I have a lot of fun foam hanging around from different Sunday School crafts. I'll let you know what I think
