Asian Artistry in Faux Silk

Today's post is a card using the Level 2 Hostess set called Asian Artistry. I really love this set. This technique is perfect for this set. Faux Silk is a very simple yet
gorgeous technique. Instructions are below.

Stamp your image on tissue paper and color it in, if necessary. Allow to dry and wad up tissue. Next you flatten tissue back out and using our awesome glue stick, cover a piece of light cardstock with glue, and place the tissue over it, smoothing out some, but not all of the wrinkles. Trim tissue and wrap edges around cardstock. Finish Card.

Colors used: Melon Mambo, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla Cardstocks and Inks.
Other: Melon Mambo Ribbon, Vintage Brads

Thanks for stopping by, see ya again soon.
