Feaux Silk Nature Walk Sympathy Card

I did this technique at my last Saturday workshop and I loved it. It is called Feaux Silk and it is so easy. You stamp your image and then use the Anywhere Glue Stick 104045 $3.95 and spread glue all over your CS over your image and then take a piece of tissue paper bigger than your CS that you stamped your image on and crumple it up before you put the glue down. Then when you put the glue down you spread the tissue paper over the glued piece and spread it out to get the bubbles out but not the wrinkles. Then turn your cardstock over and trim the tissue paper off. Very easy, fun and beauuutiful indeedy!
Here is what I used for my first card:
CS: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black,First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper 121878 $11.95

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes 115370 $36.95, Nature Walk 121997 $18.95

Ink: Cherry Cobbler Ink and Marker, Red Riding Hood Marker, Old Olive Marker and Always Artichoke marker
Accessories: Square Lattice Texture Folder 119976 $7.95, Big Shot 113439 $99.95, Cherry Cobbler 1/2 " Seam Binding 120992 $6.95, Modern Lable Punch 119849 $16.95, Anywhere Glue Stick 104045 $3.95,Dimensions 104430 $3.95 and white tissue paper.
