Joyful Holiday Wishes
This morning I started my day with a Card Challenge. I really enjoy the technique challenges on Mondays on Splitcoast, because it forces me to stray away from my coloured cards! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE to colour, but I think it's fun to delve into other techniques as well.
Today's Technique is called Faux Silk......... I couldn't believe how quick and easy it is to do and you can achieve such a pretty look with it. Here's the link for the technique why don't you give it a try?
As you can see in the close up, the wrinkles from the tissue paper add dimension to the image. I did an overall dust of dazzling diamonds glitter, which did take away slightly from the wrinkled look. The image is from the Stamp Barn in Stittsville Ontario. I have had it for a few years and pull it out at least once a year to make a card. I used Not Quite Navy and Soft Sky as my cardstock Base The DP is a flocked paper, I believe from My Minds Eye, but I am not completely sure because my BFF Jax gave it to me. I was very happy because although the paper is flocked, with a little careful rocking, I was able to stamp the sentiment right onto the paper!! YAY for me!!!! lol........ I used an EK success border punch to make the snowflake border and added a couple of Jolee's snowflakes for effect!!!!
Still have some time to stamp before Christmas????
Have a great day!
