Faux Silk Sale-a-bration Card
I used the Bliss Sale-a-bration set. This is one of the sets you can have for FREE when you place a $100 Stampin'Up! order with me during February and March.
Colours used in card and inks were Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie.
The technique is Faux Silk. You can find a post explaining this technique under the listings for Card Techniques.
I must admit to making a boo-boo with this card! I had planned to mount the finished faux silk tissue piece onto white card then onto a black matt but instead got totally distracted while creating and stuck my stamped tissue paper onto the black matt and not the white card. I did not realise until I had finished the card!!!!! I don't think it ended up too bad, in fact the effect grew on me as I had it sitting on my desk for the next few days!
Any way Sarah liked it and that is what is important!
Have a great day!
