Faux Silk

Faux Silk

Today I’m sharing some cards made with the Faux Silk technique, which was our focus this month at Stamp Club. Faux Silk is a deceptively simple technique that uses very few extra supplies: tissue paper and a glue stick is all you need. I LOVE the effect!!!

Here is a brief How To:

1. Stamp your image in StazOn Black ink onto tissue paper. Water colour as usual.
The cards above feature the Level 2 Hostess Set Echoes Of Kindness, watercoloured with Kiwi Kiss, Pale Plum and Perfect Plum inks using a blender pen.

2. Scrunch the tissue paper! Yep, screw it up into a ball (very therapeutic!)

3. Gently open the tissue paper to flatten it. There will be creases all over the tissue paper.

4. Cover a piece of cardstock using the Stampin’ Up! glue stick (it has square edges which makes it very easy to reach right into the corners).
The cards above use Whisper White as the base cardstock.

5. Stick the tissue paper to the cardstock. Trim and layer to your card front.

If you’re keen to get the Echoes of Kindness stamp set, don’t forget the fantastic Hostess Promotion for June and July. With qualifying workshop orders of $600 or more you could earn yourself this set for FREE plus at least $110 worth of Stampin’ Up! products of your choice (it’s usually $70 but for now you can grab an extra $40!). 

Contact me to organise a workshop, OR if that’s not your style why not host a catalogue party? Your own purchases plus orders you collect from your stamping buddies combine, and you keep the hostess benefits! Very easy.

Happy stampin’ (and faux silk-ing),
