Faux Leather bookmark

A quick and easy way to get a leather look or faux leather.  Bascially you rip pieces of good old regular masking tape and fill a piece of cardstock.  Next step do DTP technique with ink pads.  I used a bunch of Ranger Ink Distress ink pads, buffing with paper towel after each color.  King of spades image is from The Stampsmith Art Rubber Stamps so of course this bookmark (yes, I'm on a bookmark kick) is for faux technique: The Stampsmith Challenge . 

A question came up:
I'm sorry I've been stamping so long I forget to explain myself sometimes.
What is DTP?
 DTP = direct to paper which means to take your ink pad directly to your paper to add color. Drag ink pad over your paper.
