This month we are playing around with the Faux Silk technique. It's super simple to do, and with the right stamps this technique really shines.
I used a pretty large stamp for this card, it's one of my favorites because its so pretty and really fun to color. It's from Stampendous and its called Rananculous Field. I decided to use very pale pink tissue paper vs. white for a little variety. I colored the image with Distress markers and a water brush that was barely wet. You do need to be careful as I did tear the paper a bit since it got too wet as I was moving around my watercolor. I ended up just excluding that part of the image...after I glued the tissue paper down I did a color wash with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam Glitter Paint in Butterscotch. It was more of a glaze than a paint really since its very translucent, shiny and glittery! It's really pretty on person and I highly recommend it, I now own it in about seven colors.
I finished the card with a sentiment from a Hero Arts Friendship Clear stamp set, papers from My Minds Eye and a few flat back pearls.
