I had a reasonably quiet week in the crafting department last week so this morning I decided I'd try a new technique that was showcased in one of Stampin' Up!s demonstrator magazines a couple of months ago, called "Faux Silk". I used the latest Clean and Simple sketch as my inspiration.
It involves stamping an image on tissue paper, crumpling, smoothing, glueing, etc. I think the tissue I chose was a little too fine as you can barely see it, but still, it was good to try it out. I've attached photos of the process as well in case you were interested in trying it. I will definitely try it again but with gift wrap tissue which is slightly thicker than what I had on hand this morning.
Do you know I've given this little girl a name? It just seemed a little sad to be referring to her as 'the little girl' so from now on she will be knows as Emily on my blog! Don't ask me why I chose that name, it just popped into my mind, slightly old-fashioned perhaps? She looks like an Emily to me anyway LOL! And don't worry, I won't be naming all my other stamps!
What I used:
Card: White, Night of Navy
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Night of Navy
Stamp sets: Easter Blossoms, Sincere Salutations
Tools and other fun stuff: Stamp-a-ma-jig, glue stick, Stampin' Sponges, non SU circle and scallop dies/templates.
