Leather Paper

This week in the ongoing study of Julia Andrus' book "Paper Transformed" in the NGS group, we're studying the section "Leather Paper". Spray a "leather like colored" piece of card stock with Perfect Ink Refresher and gently rub onto the paper.
Repeatedly crumple the paper to create the desired texture. The use of Perfect Ink Refresher gives the paper a leather like feel.
If you'll be using the paper as a flat piece, iron it flat to dry.
If desired, accent the piece by gently rubbing a dye based ink over the surface.
You can achieve different looks, by what color paper you use and the amount of crumpling you do and whether and what ink you use.
