Faux Silk Tissue Paper Birthday Card

WAY BACK in the dark ages, at one of the stamp camp events I attended (I am remembering 2005), there was a quick lesson in the faux silk technique.

Stamp on tissue, crumple tissue, apply to white panel covered in glue stick. Easy peasy – hardest part was waiting for the stamped images to dry on the tissue paper! When it is all dry, it really does look like expensive silk.

On Tuesday I purchased a few items that were wrapped in this BEAUTIFUL tissue paper at checkout. This store always has the most beautiful tissue paper (and, alas, it is not a store I visit often!) – I have shown it before on the blog.

No stamping on this tissue – good to go as it is.

Let’s see…what else is going on…

Fall allergies & asthma have kicked in this week – too many leaves on the ground for me to breathe.

What’s up in your corner of the world?
