Totally Techniques: Faux Silk Technique

Good morning stampers!

This month's technique is called Faux Silk.  It's a really beautiful technique.  This was my first time trying this :D

Faux Silk Technique

  • You're supposed to use tissue (crepe) paper; 
  • stamp on it; 
  • let dry; 
  • crinkle it up; 
  • unfold; 
  • and continue coloring/watercoloing...
  • Then adhere it to card stock (I used Whisper White paper).
  • Then adhered to the base of my card.
  • However, do you know I actually used a real tissue!!!! Can you tell? What do you think?
Today, I also brought back the "bling" with the Rhinestones!  Hmmmm....maybe I added too many?  But can there be too much "bling"? lol.

Also notice, the Flowering Flourishes stamp....it's both Pacific Point blue and Black.  I first inked it entirely in Pacific Blue, then I took the Basic Black ink pad and just inked the edges (where I wanted).  Since I was using a Clear Mount, I couldn't do the traditional "Rock n Roll" technique.
