F is for Faux Silk

I played with this technique a couple of years ago, and decided to play with it again.
Cut tissue paper about 1/2" larger than you want. Stamp image over the tissue paper (I started with a piece of left over light green tissue paper).
Gently wrinkle the tissue paper until it's covered with creases, be careful not to tear.
Gently spread the tissue paper over a piece of card stock that is covered with adhesive, and press down.
You can trim the edges and stop here or add a little shimmer.
I rubbed on some Moonlight Brilliance ink to soften my stamped images.

Another lovely technique Carol. You have so many lovely and helpful tutorials on your blog, thank you for the inspiration. I can't believe how much you get through.
