Faux Silk Technique

Hello Everybody!

It's the first Tuesday of September so that means it is time to learn a new technique at Technique Time Tuesday.  I really do enjoy learning these different techniques, and I hope you do too!

Mynnette has a wonderful tutorial that can be found here.  Here is my card:

I made the tissue paper panel and colored the stamped image with Copics and Spectrum Noir markers.  I mounted the panel on a piece of card stock where I colored the edges with this very cool marker from Faber-Castell.  It is a PITT artist pen blue metallic.  I colored the mermaid's tail with this marker.  The blue marker shows up darker on her tail (which is on the tissue paper) versus on the border (which is on white cardstock).  

I trimmed some silver paper for the background of my card.  Then I added the black cardstock and then the blue metallic colored paper.  Lastly, I put on my faux silk panel.  

This cool mermaid is from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I got it when I took a class at the Scrapbook Expo a few months ago.  The shell and this sentiment are from the same set.  I used some stickles glitter for the shell.

On the inside I stamped hello from The Alley Way Stamps.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

I really hope that you try the Faux Silk Technique.  I can't wait to see your new creations!  Until next time my friends..get those stamps out! :)
