Faux Silk Technique

The other night I made 4 very simple and quick cards. One was posted yesterday, today is one, and two more to follow.

This was my first time trying the faux silk technique. It was really easy. I colored my stamp with SU markers and stamped the image onto white wrapping tissue. Then I crumbled the tissue into a ball and straighted it out. I used a glue stick and rubbed glue onto some whisper white cardstock and then smoothed the tissue over the cardstock. I used scissors to easily trim off the tissue paper edges hanging over the cardstock. Super easy and quick!!
