More Techniques

I just wanted to show you this last card from my techniques class - I must confess that this was probably my favourite! The techniques is called faux Silk - and it is another one that you really need to see in real life as the picture doesn't do it justice.

The finish has the look and feel of silk - lots of texture - but really simple and effective. Start with a piece of tissue paper and stamp your chosen image over the paper. I used an image from Simply Soft - a hostess set - stamped in chocolate chip and coloured in using a baja breeze marker. Once this is done, scrunch up your tissue paper (yes you did read that right!), open it up again and smooth it out over a piece of card stock covered in glue (I used a glue stick). It's just like smoothing out the foil wrappers that cover chocolate mints!

If you like the look of these classes, then check out the list of current classes on offer - bring a friend if you want - or if these dates don't suit you, get a few friends together and I can come and run the class at yours on a date of your choice. just ring or drop me a line to arrange.
