I belong to this awesome Design Team called “Totally Techniques” and we get to work with one technique a month. Today it is “Faux Silk”. It’s been a long time since I’ve done this technique and I’ve forgotten how much I love it.
Stamping on Tissue of Filter Paper than adhering to a piece of cardstock with Adhesive on all of it (card stock). Make sure to leave some wrinkles in it.
I’m excited about this card and my little secret. hehe
- The card base is Shimmery White and cut to 4 1/4 x 11
I think it gives a beautiful soft look to the card and makes the eye concentrate on the image.
I am showcasing the Wild About Flowers Stamp Set on page 74 of your catalog and just love it and the ease of using it. My Colors are Mossy Meadow for the Green and Elegant Eggplant for the Flowers. Beautiful Combo I might add.
When I adhered the Vellum to the card I actually scored 1/4 “ across the top and adhered it to the back of the card base to hold it in place. So it just lays on top of the card base. Love that look. Plus you don’t see any tape though the vellum on the front of your card.
I wanted to follow though with a bit more color so added a simple strip of Eggplant Card Stock to the center of the card.
My image was stamped several times onto a piece of Filter Paper (pg. 148) with the stems and then the flowers to make this wild flower image. I then adhered it to a piece of cardstock using one of our Glue Sticks believe it or not and it worked beautifully! Make sure to leave a few wrinkles to resemble silk. I’m not a big wrinkle person so that was hard for me but there are a few! lol
I used the Ovals Framelits to cut and then mounted onto the card base that has the vellum attached.
I felt it need something so I took a few strings of the pearls that come in the Basic Pearls and added them in a semi arch to mimic the top of the oval…I think that finished it don’t you?
I hope you enjoyed my share today and that you will come back often. I love hearing from you too so please leave a comment and let me know you were here.
