CAS-ual Fridays

Today is the beginning of all things good and fun .. is the start of my term as Designer for CAS-ual fridays!

And to kick it off we are having a wallpaper challenge....

I have always wanted  a wallpaper with the brushed suede effect , and there was a time when, wherever I looked I saw it, be it at a home store, or HGTV or the model homes, it was everywhere!
Unfortunately as much as I loved it , was never brave enough to wallpaper our home even just an accent wall.
So the next best thing to do when you love something a lot is to create a card with that look. I tell you it is much easier and way less expensive  too!

 To achieve the  suede effect I heat embossed in white and applied a watercolor wash in yellow and went over it with an orange ink pad.
There is lots of inspiration over at Cas-ual Fridays...head over and play along!

and we have Ellen Hutson sponsoring this week....

A closer look at the suede effect...
