A Card Can Tell a Whole Story

Faux Leather and Wax Paper Resist
Sometimes a card can tell a whole story.  A journey through the SW, Indian pictographs on cave walls or animal images burned onto leather, sandy and parched ground...That's how this card came to be.  Techniques:  the wax paper resist for one layer, stamped faux leather from the MFP/Speedy Fox and Friends challenge.  It's a masculine-themed using warm colors so it will also be entered in the following challenges:  Use Your Stuff--add texture;  Paper Creator Crafts- for the boys;  Delicious Doodles--something for the boys;  Word Art Wednesday--anything goes, and these blogs as well:
