Faux Silk

All Images Copyright Stampin' Up 1990-2008

I think I've just found my new favorite technique! At least for this week LOL! I was prepping for my Stamp a Stack this week and new that I had a good mix of experienced stampers and newbies attending so I wanted to show a simple technique that had a lot of "WOW" to it. I stumbled across the tutorial for Faux Silk over at SCS and decided I couldn't go wrong.

For this card, I used Wild Wasabi cs for the base and then layered my tissue paper piece on top of a Purely Pomegranate. I finished it off with some double-stitched Purely Pomegranate ribbon I had in my ribbon drawer. I stamped the image, From the Garden in Bravo Burgundy for a slightly lighter shade.

I'm pleased with it.
