Faux Silk

Today I will teach you how to make Faux Silk. It is a REALLY EASY technique! The people that I taught how, LOVES it because it is sooo simple & plus it is a FUN way to use up all that wrinkly tissue paper that you have laying around!

1. Cut out the tissue paper a little bit beyond the cardstock that you will be pasting it on.

2. Crinkle the paper.

3. Smooth out. You still want a little bit of a wrinkle to it, as seen her. Set aside. Apply adhesive of your choice over entire piece of cardstock. Spread tissue paper over adhesive. Trim tissue paper.

4.Finish your card.

You can stamp images on tissue paper instead of using per designed tissue paper. You may color the images if necessary but a little hint: color carefully, the ink will bleed through the tissue paper. To make it bold- Use a bold stamp image stamp instead and stamp in colored ink. The ink will run a bit if you use glues stick or liquid glue. It just adds to your project.
