Father's Day Part 2

Hi there, well as promised here is the third card I made for Father's Day...

Having had fun with Mo Mannings "Extra" image I thought I would use this one "Fixer Boy" for the card I was making on behalf of my son.

Want to know how to create a distressed leather tool belt. 
It is really easy to do, simply colour it using browns of your choice and then carefully go over the highlight areas with colourless blender.  But then the knack is to go over these areas again (once dry) with a light shade to add a touch of graining/wear back in.
What do you think?

I think Mo has another winner with her image, but YOU, my dear, sell that image. Your colouring is splendid, and I think you achieved the "aged" look on the tool belt to perfection (thanks for the how-to hint). This card gets top notch ratings in my book!
