Faux Silk Technique

Today’s card features a new technique for me. As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I get a monthly magazine full of information and ideas. This card was CASEd from a Faux Silk example in that magazine. I used this technique to get that soft floral image.  It’s really easy to do, and we’ll be doing this at a future Stamp Club. 

I stamped with Rose Red ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Then I crinkled some tissue paper and straightened it back out.  Finally I used my Anywhere Glue Stick to adhere the tissue paper to my stamped image and trimmed the excess tissue paper.

My colors are from the Stampin' 411 Color Inspiration 147 -- Rose Red, So Saffron, and Wild Wasabi.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by!
