New technique

Well, it is to me as I have only just found it.

Hello everyone I hope your Easter weekend is going well.  I am popping in today to show you some cards I have made using the "new" found technique called Faux Silk.

This was my first try;

The Faux Silk uses a stamped image on card which is then covered with stick glue & crumpled tissue laid over the top.  It is a very delicate effect.  Here are two more cards with this technique;

I can see me using this technique quite a lot & I think quite a few of this years Christmas cards will be made using it.  Oh dear - I have mentioned the "C" word in April!!!!  Still it is never too early to start is it.

Thank you for stopping by I hope you enjoyed your visit.
