Faux Silk

Hi there, unfortunately no challenge entries happening here this week, so I thought I might share a simple sympathy/support card with you:-

This one uses the easy, but very effective, faux silk technique.  Here's a close up of the lovely texture it creates:-

It also allowed me to reverse the image, as you can see from the envelope.

All supplies except the tissue paper & string are SU.  Please drop me a line if you'd like more details.

Hope you all enjoy your Australia Day celebrations tomorrow!

What a sweet design! And ... perfect for the sad occasion. Thanks for your FABBO email, Helen! It had me thinking! I am thinking the Prismas might suit me down to the ground. Will email back asap! I have a few questions! Hugs xxx

Hi Helen,

I've never tried this technique, but it looks fabulous!

Hope you had a wonderful day.
