Faux Silk – A new challenge and a new technique.

Hi and welcome. Each week I look forward to participating in the challenge set down by the lovely ladies at Sunny Challenges and Creations. You will find all the information about this weeks challenge here. The Faux Silk is a technique that I have never tried before. Here is what I came up with:

Friends Never Fade - Faux Silk Technique

The idea for this card woke me up very early this morning. Far too early in fact. So I rolled over and went back to sleep for a while, 45 minutes later, I couldn’t sleep anymore so off to crafting I went. I will be honest, I did ‘dummy’ run first. My biggest tip when trying this very easy but very effective technique is to always make sure your tissue paper is larger than the area you want to cover. My first run is binned, I didn’t have enough tissue paper scrunched to cover the area of the card. After I worked that little bit out, it was smooth sailing. I didn’t ‘faux silk’ the sentiment, as when I did, you couldn’t see the sentiment. I haven’t used this stamp in quite a long time and figured that it needed to see the light of day again.

Why not join in the challenge this week and see what you come up with. Its so much fun!!

Just a short and sweet post today.

Thank you once again for stopping by………….. “May the Stamps be with you”
