Faux Silk Sympathy Card

Take a piece of tissue paper, crumple it up, and then smooth it on top of your stamped image.  Trim it to fit, and you have used the Faux Silk Technique on your project.  Something so easy to do, and yet it really creates a different image for your card.

I started with Always Artichoke cardstock for my card base, and added an embossed layer of Crumb Cake.  I colored my image with markers right onto my stamp and then stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Anywhere Glue Stick to cover the whole image, and then placed my tissue paper on top.  I smoothed it out using the Bone Folder, and trimmed it to fit and then placed it onto my card.  A piece of Always Artichoke seam binding and a Rose Red Flower Brad were added to the top of the card.
