Passionate about Faux Silk

I love the look and feel of this faux silk card.  I came across this technique in Stampin' Success (the Stampin' Up! demo monthly magazine) but there is also a Faux-silk tutorial on Splitcoaststampers by Beate Johns.
This technique is perfect if you want to add some elegance to a card with out a love of work.  Its super simple and quick and just requires a stamp, some ink, tissue paper, cardstock and glue.  Just stamp, crinkle, and glue.  Voila!!!
I also created a paper pierced border, which highlighted the stamped image. 
Supplies that I used include "Inspired by Nature" stamp set; Pear Pizazz, Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla and More Mustard cardstock; Pear Pizazz Classic Stampin' ink; and the mat pack with piercing tool.  This card took only a few minutes to make and it turned out great.

Try out a new technique today and see how it changes the look of a card.

Take care
