Faux Silk

We made this card at the Flo Valley stamp camp. I used the technique Faux Silk. This is a very simple technique and you really can't tell from the picture but it does turn out very elegant. All you have to do is stamp your image on tissue paper with Staz On and then water color the image in. Crumple up the tissue paper and use the Anywhere Glue Stick to adhere the tissue paper to Whisper White card stock. After you have adhered the tissue paper cut off any excess tissue paper you might have and complete your card.
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Embrace Life
Card Stock: Whisper White, Cameo Coral, River Rock & Basic Black
Ink: River Rock & Cameo Coral

One More Happy Heart Day

This is one last sample I made using the "Happy Heart Day" stamp set. If you look at the buttons I put some rub-ons on top of them. The Designer Series Paper is Spring Fling

Candy Bar Wrapper

I know, it looks kind of like the pencil holder but I thought it turned out cute. I used the Spring Fling Designer Series Paper and just wrapped it around. I was going to put this inside the mail box but it doesn't fit I guess I should have checked that first. Oh well I will find another home for it.
