Intriguing. Your workflow yields a completely different effect compared to mine

If you know the software's basics, then this is not really "artistic skill": I just suddenly remembered the terms, such as Emboss, Bump Map, Directional Light, and so on, and looked up some tutorials on how to apply that stuff. Don't ask me to create stuff from scratch using paper and pencil because I'll fail horribly.

Would it be appreciated if I created a bump map/emboss tutorial (using GIMP) with regard to these covers? And if I do, should I put it in a different thread?

===

One more: a leather cover, posted earlier in this thread, with a free ornament grabbed from the internet. After embossing it, I've actually used the embossing stamp image to add a highlight to the ornament. (Compare it as if you would fill an imprinted image with paint, on a real leather cover.)

Of course I can churn out a gazillion different covers now, but I really don't want to. Does someone have a request, like: "I'd like this ornament I found there added to that cover, in this or that way"? Maybe I could try it.
