Faux Alligator Instructions

I've had a couple of people ask for the instuctions for the faux alligator card found here. So here are the insturctions that were shared at the last stamp share I went to.

Supplies needed:
Cardstock: whatever size and color you would like (I used black)
VersaMark Pad
Bone Folder
Embossing Powder (I used black)
Heat tool

1. Stamp VersaMark direct to paper all over the entire area you want to look like alligator skin
2. Cover entire area with Embossing powder.
3. Using your bone folder, draw squiggly lines diagonally across your entire cardstock area.
4. Now turn your paper and draw squiggly lines across the opposite diagonal. (This will pull embossing powder off of your cardstock)
5. Using your heat tool, Emboss entire area.
6. VIOLA.....faux alligator.

It is super easy, but if I didn't explain it well enough, please email me or post another comment and I will try to explain it better.

Thank you for your sweet comments!
