I haven't had much time for stamping until yesterday when I attended Nerine's Techniques Class. One of the techniques she taught us was "Faux Silk". This is a super-easy, very pretty effect. I had a play today (having borrowed Nerine's SU Artfully Asian stamp set for that purpose) and this is what I came up with.
The base of the card is Sage Shadow (my favourite green). I stamped the Cherry Blossom from the Artfully Asian set on to tissue paper, crumpled it up and then glued it onto a pice of Pretty in Pink cardstock. I then stamped the Cherry Blossom again onto watercolour paper and coloured with SU markers - Pretty in Pink and Sage Shadow. The ribbon is from SU's Flirty Ribbon Originals.
It is a very simple card but I really like it. Do you? Let me know.
