Another Faux Silk Effect

Yet another card using the faux-silk effect!  This one is for my nephew's 1st birthday, which is tomorrow.

Another Faux Silk Effect Card 

Stamps: Pun Fun (115854), Star Wheel (retired).  Card/Paper: Real Red (108595), Yoyo Yellow (102717), Whisper White (106549).  Ink: Basic Black (101179), Real Red (103133), Brilliant Blue (100691), Yoyo Yellow (102717).  Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (102023).  Tools: Anywhere Glue Stick (104045), Daubers (102892), Blender Pen (102845), 2-way Glue Pen (100425), Mat Pack (105826), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).  Techniques: Faux Silk Effect, Water Colouring.

This time, instead of white tissue paper, I used a blue that was almost the same shade as Brilliant Blue.  I used a star Stampin' Wheel (retired) to create the "space scene" and then mixed this with Read Red and Yoyo Yellow.  The Bold Brights colour family is great for kids' cards.  I mounted the crushed tissue on white as I found that it made it brighter than if I mounted it on blue card.  If you don't turn the tissue over the edges and choose to trim it, I would suggest you sponge or dauber the edges of the exposed white card.

 

Faux Silk Effect

After Tuesday night's workshop I was playing with the Faux Silk Effect and created the card below.  Unfortunately, the camera doesn't quite capture the texture!  It is a really lovely way of adding texture to cards and scrapbooking pages.  To see the card that we created at the June workshop using this effect, click HERE and check out the previous workshop projects.

Easter Baskets

Since my son's 3rd birthday landed on Easter we had an Easter egg hunt, which went down a treat.  I discovered these baskets and made them for the kids to put their found Easter eggs in and take home.

They are so cute, look great and were easy to make, so I have included them as one of the projects at my June workshop.

I enjoy sharing what I know with others and inspiring their stamping creativity.
