Another one of my FAVORITE stamp sets from the NEW SUMMER MINI.  This set is called "Elements of Style".  LOVE IT!  On this card I used a Cosmetic Q-Tip to color the flowers with Classic Ink Pads.  You could also use a Aqua Painter if you would like.  I had seen this card and I changed a few things around and made this.  You are going to really like this set.  You can do so many different cards or Scrapbook pages with it.  You really have to check out the NEW mini.  There are so many NEW sets and products.

Faux Silk Technique

This is a really easy and elegant Technique.
I did this technique at my last Technique Thursday club.  All my club members really liked this technique.  I have to give a Thank you to one of my fellow demonstrators for this technique and the card design.  Thank you so much Laurie Zoellmer!  To make this wonderful and easy card, the directions are as follows:

1.  Stamp image on tissue paper and allow to dry.  Make sure you put paper under your tissue paper, the ink will bleed through.
2.  Crinkle up the tissue paper and then smooth out.  (But not all the wrinkles)
3.  Apply Glue (using the Glue Stick) over the entire piece of neutral cardstock.
4.  Put tissue on glued cardstock and smooth out most of the wrinkles.
5.  Trim excess tissue off or fold over and adhere to back of cardstock.

Close up shot.
How easy is that!!  You are going to LOVE this technique.  If you want to learn more techniques like this check out my Technique Thursday club.  
Thanks for stopping by.  Come back soon.
