Faux Silk with Post Script and Paisley & Posies + VIDEO

For the second of the techniques in our technique class this month,  I am bringing back another old favourite – Faux Silk. I also have a video which I made last year to show you how easy it is to create these great effects.

Card 1:

Card 2:


  • Stamp images on white tissue paper and allow to dry. Crunch up the paper into a small ball and then carefully open out, leaving most of the creases.
  • Totally cover a piece of white cardstock with adhesive and pat the tissue paper onto it, taking care to keep the creases. Fold the edges of the tissue paper over to the back and adhere.
