Faux Silk

Inspired-by-nature-faux-silI made this card for a demonstrator meeting and it uses the faux silk technique.  I stamped the background first, brayered over it with mellow moss ink.  then and then stamped on tissue paper and crumpled it up.  When I attached the tissue (with gluestick) to the front of the card, I did not smooth out all of the wrinkles to give it that faux silk look.

Thanks to my customer, Ann Fletcher, from Burlington, who had the original idea that I copied from.

This stamp set is called "Inspired by  Nature" and it might seem "new" but it was on the dormant list before and now appears in the new catalogue.   My favourite part of the set is the "grass"..I use it all the time.
