Technique Time Tuesday

Today is the first Tuesday of the month, which brings a new technique for you to try
This month at Technique Time Tuesday we are playing with a technique called...
Faux Silk
Here's my Design Team card I made using the Faux Silk technique
Both the flower image and sentiment are from Close to My Heart (old stamps from my stash)
I used White and Kraft cardstock for my card
The image was colored using my Copic markers:  BG10, BG15, BG23
I finished the card with 3 different Washi tapes
Lavender adhesive rhinestones and lavender floss
I also added a touch of glitter to the center of the flower

This is a close up of the flower so that you can see the texture you get with this technique
Make sure to check out the tutorial on the blog
I know you will be inspired by the creations the Design Teams has shared
I hope you will be able to join in and play along this month
It is always so much fun to learn a new technique and share with others
I look forward to seeing what you all come up with using the Faux Silk technique
Thanks for stopping by today - Catch the Frenzy! - Karen
