This faux leather technique has a few more steps than the others but is still very effective!! I would have added the last coat of sealer to the surface to get a bit of sheen and also to protect the surface of the paper. I chose a rather non - leather colour - bright blue - but the texture is wonderful and it surely makes very interesting and effective background paper. Both the cardstock layer and the tissue could be stamped before layering them to create yet more dimension. I would recommend making several sheets of any of these papers while you have your paints and tools out!!
