Challenge #145 at Shopping Our Stash~~~a Technique

If you are looking for my Clear it Out Tuesday post just scroll down or click HERE.

Not just any technique but a FAUX technique. There are a lot of great faux techniques check out Splitcoast stampers or just google like I did. Check out all the rules at Shopping Our Stash Blog and while you are there check out the faux techniques that my teamies have done.
I had so many ideas on what to do, I decided to do a faux technique that I had never done before, I found a video at Stamps to Die for of Faux Silk, it look fairly simple (at least I thought it did) The big thing I can suggest is “lots of glue stick”.
First one I did was with dye ink and when I put the glue stick on the image it bled…scrap one, second one I was more careful with the glue stick but missed a couple of spots and the tissue didn’t stick.  I then found the daffodil image in my scrap box, I was not happy with my choice for a birthday card so chose something else. I thought perfect for this technique. I made a frame for the image,added some ribbon and a couple of shimmery butterflies
Close up picture of the faux silk technique.
Inside of the card, I have no idea why it looks blue in the picture it is So saffron (yellow)

Thanks for stopping by today and I would like you to join in the fun and do a faux technique.and post it on the SOS challenge blog. I did work on a second technique as I had the perfect stamp for it, but unfortunately it just didn't work out as I had hoped.

Love the faux silk! I've actually done that one before, too. It's a great effect, and looks so pretty on your springy card. :)

LOVE this! It would make a perfect Easter card :) I love that you included the parts where you had trouble, because FOR SURE I would have trouble in the same places!
