Avant Garden Eggplant Faux Silk and VIDEO

Have you taken advantage of the FREE products in the 2017 Sale-A-Bration Catalogue yet?

Today I am using one of these products, the Avant Garden 2-step stamping Stamp set with another old technique known as Faux Silk.



  • Are you a visual learner? Check out my video in the link below.
  • Prefer descriptions to create? Keep reading.
  • Take a piece of white tissue paper (16cm x 12cm OR 5½” x 4″) and randomly stamp solid images from Avant Garden using Elegant Eggplant and Always Artichoke inks.
  • Allow the ink to dry and then scrunch up the tissue paper as if you were going to throw it away.
  • Carefully open the tissue paper, taking care not to straighten out the creases.
  • Use a glue stick to cover a piece of Whisper White cardstock (11.4cm x 7.7cm OR 4½’ x 3″) and lay the tissue paper over it.
  • Lightly pat the tissue paper onto the glue, keeping the creases.
  • Turn over and attach the sides of the tissue to the back of the white cardstock.
  • Attach the art piece to Elegant Eggplant cardstock (12cm x 8.2cm OR 4¾” x 3¼”).
  • Make up a card base with Thick Whisper White (21cm x 14.8cm scored at 10.5cm OR 8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”). Stamp a sentiment in the lower right hand corner with Elegant Eggplant and then randomly stamp the small image all over the card with Always Artichoke ink.
  • Attach the layered art piece at an angle on the card base.
  • And for the inside and envelope …..
