Ok... this is my attempt at the faux alligator technique. I sure hope you can see it in this photo. It's really a simple technique. You blot your paper with a versa mark pad until it's completely covered. Then you sprinkle embossing powder all over it and shake off the excess. You use a bone folder to make the lines in it before you heat it up. Making the lines look like an alligator print is the tricky part. This fun little purple tote is made from the bigz die, scallop circle and the large oval punch.
