TLC332 Faux Silk With a Twist

Hello everyone!! Hope you are having fun on this wonderful July 4th weekend!!! What better way to celebrate that to do a little stamping....Whoohoo!!! It's my turn to host this weeks TLC challenge on splitcoast and I am going to revisit a past challenge and add a little twist!! This week we are going to do Faux Silk. However, we are going to fancy it up just a bit by adding sponging, misting with Glimmer Mist or any other similar product, chalk, alcohol inks, flicking on the ink with a toothbrush, adding glitter or Stickles, or any other fun think you can think of!!

The instructions are pretty simple:
1. Stamp image on the tissue paper
2. Crinkle up some tissue paper and then flaten it out
3. Add glue to the background paper using a glue stick, glue spray, or liquid glue
4. Adhere the tissue paper to the backing making sure you leave a few wrinkles
5. Trim off the excess tissue paper

For those who don't have tissue paper, you can use a napkin, thin paper towel, or mulberry paper.

For my sample, I stamped the Rubbernecker 10 Point Ornament #SKU: 548 and the Rubbernecker Stamp Oasis sentiment called Scroll Joy #SKU: 1206 SO onto a napkin with Vivid Aqua ink, wadded it up, flatened it out, and glued it onto a piece of white cardstock. After triming the napkin, chalk was then used to color the ornament and around the edges. The pearl center and black silk ribbon finish it off. Recipe: Stamps: Rubbernecker 10 Point Ornament and RN Stamp Oasis Scroll Joy sentiment, Paper: White, Black, Ink: Vivid Aqua, Versafine Onyx Black, Accessories: Black Silk Ribbon, Pearls, Napkin, Chalks

Thanks for stopping by...have a Great July 4th!!!

Wow Joan, another technique that is completely new to me, thanks for telling us about it. I actually dug out some tissue paper earlier today to put in a gift box, so I might have a go at this. The result looks beautiful, I love the design of your card and the way you stamped off the page like that, a nice contemporary look.

Hope you are having a good 4th of July. Enjoy the BBQ! CoB
