Today I have another of the projects I'll be creating with my monthly techniques group next week. It uses the Faux Silk technique...an oldie, but one many of my newer members haven't seen.
|Spring-themed card featuring the Painted Petals and From the Garden stamp sets, Butterflies Thinlits and using the Faux Silk background technique.|
Whisper White layer behind it using the Spring Flowers TIEF and adhered it to a Soft Sky card base. I die cut a small butterfly from scrap Soft Sky card stock using the Butterflies Thinlits and layered it behind a larger butterfly die-cut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper. The sentiment, from the From the Garden set, is stamped in Pistachio Pudding ink and trimmed into a pennant using the Banner punch and then embellished with a bit of Pistachio Ruffled Ribbon (retired). The finishing touches were the Simply Pressed Clay moulded flower and a scattering of pearls.

I have to say, even though this technique is an old one, I love the way this card turned out! Sometimes the tried-and-true can surprise us!
