Faux Silk Technique

I love how elegant the faux silk technique looks on a card. This was CASE'd from the January 2011 issue of Stampin' Connection available to Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. Here's the recipe:
Stamp Set: Just Believe
Cardstock: Concord Crush, Pear Pizzaz, Peach Parfait & Whisper White
Stampin' Write Markers: Concord Crush & Pear Pizzaz and the Eyelet Punch

Stamp your image onto whisper white cardstock. Gently crinkle a piece of gift wrap tissue paper then flatten it back out. Cover the stamped image with a glue stick (make sure it is completely dry or it will smear.) Adhere the tissue paper to the stamped image and trim the excess. You can also stamp directly onto the tissue paper before crinkling it, flatten it back out and adhere it to the cardstock. Happy Stamping!
