All week we will be focusing on traditional gifts and color schemes for 4th anniversaries. The Shining the Light Challenge, hosted by our fabulous Challenge Team, is to use shades of aqua or topaz. Today's focus is silk. The Techniques, Tutorials, & Tips video below will show you how quick and easy it is to do the "Faux Silk" Technique, using tissue paper and cardstock. Enjoy!!
As mentioned in the video, there are so many variations to the "Faux Silk" Technique. Not only can you stamp and color on the tissue paper, but you can use patterned tissue paper for a fun background. Next time you see some fun tissue in your gift bag, you don't have to feel guilty for saving it......just recycle it and try the "Faux Silk" Technique!! It's so easy and fun!!
Since the samples may have not been very clear in the video, I have included photos below....feel free to click on them for a close-up view. The first card shows how patterned tissue acts as designer paper....the Faux Silk Technique gives it a lovely texture.
