Tips & Variations for Faux Silk

We're just a week into our FAUX SILK challenge and I'm here today to share some tips and variations to this super fun and easy technique!

Here's a card I've made with 
some of the tips and variations~
More details on my personal blog HERE.
And here are a few tips/variations:
1. Use colored tissue paper to mimic colored silk.
2. Don't color in images and use colored inks to make your lined images look like embroidery.
3. Use colored card stock to mount the white tissue paper on for a subtle color effect.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to link up your FAUX SILK creations in the original challenge post found HERE!  HUGS and happy stamping, friends!

Nice Mynette. The black trim, ribbon and ink really tie things together for the vintage-ish Santa and distressed edges. It is a winner.
