Faux Silk

This card is one we made in club a few months ago, and it features a technique called faux silk.  It's so soft and pretty, but couldn't be easier.  Simply stamp on the back of a piece of tissue paper, crumple it up, then smooth it out, and mount it to a piece of Whisper White card stock.  That's it!  Another easy technique that adds the look of texture to the base of this card is to simply stamp onto the card stock with the ink pad.  Now, this isn't going to give quite the same look with the new firm foam pads, but if you have the old felt pads, it definitely adds a little something to a card.  So there you go, two super easy techniques to try on your next card!
