Faux Silk Butterflies

Our first card for June's classes involved a technique called "Faux Silk".  For this technique you need to stamp your main image/images onto tissue paper, screw it up into a ball, undo it carefully and then attach it to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock which you have covered with Tombow or similar wet glue, smoothing down with a Paper Folding tool then trimming off the excess.

We used the Butterfly image from "Strength & Hope" and the large foliage stamp from "Just Believe" to stamp onto the tissue paper.  The greeting is from "Sincere Salutations".

Our colour combination is Concorde Crush (In Colour), Peach Parfait (In Colour) and Old Olive teamed with Whisper White.  The ribbon is the Stitched Poly in co-ordinating Concorde Crush.  The patterned paper is from the In Colour Paper Stack.

We punched out our greeting using the XL Oval Punch and then layered it onto one of the Sizzlits Labels cut using the Big Shot Machine.

The 3D Flower was created using the Boho Blossom Punch, spritzing and scrunching them to give a distressed look and adding a flower centre using one of the Bitty Punches and some Crystal Effects.
