What’s Your Favourite Technique? We Need to See It!

Looking for my Clear it Out Tuesday post scroll down or click HERE.

Shopping Our Stash has a new Challenge and it is to use your favourite technique, please tell us what it is in your blog post. Easy peasy right? I tried Faux Silk for an Easter card and was very pleased with the technique and thought I would give it another “go”.  I did find out there are two different techniques for it, one where you stamp on the tissue paper and the one I used where you stamp on a piece of cardstock, I used copics to colour my image. Then take a glue stick and cover the image then you take a piece of tissue paper scrunch it all up then open it up and add it to the image with the glue on it, smooth it out leaving some wrinkles.  Now see how mine turned out.
I used a sketch from Catch The Bug Sunday challenge for their 2nd annual Holiday Chaos. The image is ancient it is Rubber Stampede and I think it was from Michaels Arts and Crafts store. The music paper is from a DCWV stack and I spritzed it with red glimmer mist.
Here is a close up of the cardinal, I see I could have scrunched it more but I am happy with the look.

Fun technique! I didn't know there were two different ways to do it. I love the spritzed red on the music background, too!
