Distressed Metallic Leather Cuff

About this design:

This cuff is super quick and easy to put together. Using the StazOn ink pads to stamp color directly onto my leather, I was done in minutes. I wanted a gold metallic look without appearing to flashy. To achieve the look I was going for, I added in a couple shades of brown to mute the gold just a little. I think this bracelet looks great on its own or paired with a thinner cuff or ladder stitch wrap bracelet.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
First I applied the StazOn metallic gold ink pad directly onto the cuff.
Step 2:
Next I applied my 2 shades of brown StazOn to the edges of the cuff and here and there along the surface to give the cuff a distress appearance. That's all!
NOTE: If you are unhappy with the look, you can go back over it with the metallic gold - it'll be like it never happened :-)
