Faux Silk Technique for #TT03

Totally Techniques Website Banner

Welcome to our third Totally Techniques Blog Hop where a few of my lovely friends from around the world and I share projects we have all made using the same technique.

This Months Technique is Faux Silk

The countdown to Christmas is definitely happening around our house, how can it not when you have an excited 11 year old running around lol.  I don’t know about you, but money can get a bit tight this time of the year, there are so many extra added expenses.  I always look at it that it gives me a great excuse to get in there and make some of my own gifts, and they are made with a whole lot of love.   For today’s Faux Silk Technique share I have decorated up the top of a gift box using the World of Dreams stamp set.

Couple of tips when doing the Faux Silk Technique
– Stamp on the smooth side of the tissue, otherwise the image can bleed. 
– Allow image to dry on tissue before screwing up into a ball, this will stop the ink from transferring onto other areas of the tissue.
– Take your time when unscrewing tissue, it can tear easily.
– Don’t flatten tissue out to much, you want to create a crinkled effect.
– I aways stamp saying after I have adhered to card.

    This is so striking with the soft shading on the faux silk. And your charms are so cute. I wouldn’t be drinking someone else’s wine at your house….Hugs.
