Fabulous Faux Silk Flower

I thought I would share another quick and easy card with you. On this one I used the Faux Silk Technique on the main stamped image. You can see the tutorial on SCS here.

I did something a little bit different from the first time I tried this technique. Instead of using Aquapainters to colour in a lined image stamp, I inked a bold image stamp, the large flower from the Fabulous Flowers set, and stamped on the tissue paper. I also crinkled the paper before I stamped rather than after. It has a little bit of a different look to it but I think it works.

By the way, make sure that once you have glued the tissue paper to the card stock, you wait until it dries before you stamp on it. I did not and stamped my sentiment "for you" and it ran a bit.
