Stampin' Up! Faux Silk!

Hey there! After sharing the Gilded Faux Silk technique with you yesterday, I decided to make a true Faux Silk (is there such a thing as true faux?) card to show you what it looks like un-gilded. I used the Count My Blessings stamp set again with another natural coffee filter to create this:


I stamped the flower all over the coffee filter with Early Espresso ink adding Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive with sponge daubers.


After coloring and then crumpling into a ball, I adhered to a Very Vanilla piece with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, taking care to not smooth out the filter too much so it retained the bumps and creases. I wrapped the rest of the filter around to the  back side of the layer, securing with more glue.


I stamped a Very Vanilla background layer with the same flower and Early Espresso ink, leaving it un-colored for contrast.


I sponged the edges of the stamped vanilla layer with Early Espresso ink, adhering to the card front with SNAIL. After adhering the Faux Silk layer to an Early Espresso mat, I adhered to the card front with dimensionals.


I stamped a banner with the Butterfly Basics birthday greeting, sponging the edges and adding a bit of stamped-off flowers to pull it all together. I sponged a couple of Touch of Nature Elements with Early Espresso before adding behind the banner with glue dots.


I finished the inside with a stamped and sponged Very Vanilla layer using only Early Espresso ink and more Count My Blessings images.
