Week 28 Challenge at Sunny Challenges

February 19, 2012

Well we had a lot of entries last week and it was hard as usual to select a winner but pick one we did.  So if you haven’t seen the Ray of Sunshine for last week pop over to Sunny Challenges and Creations and have a look at the winning entry.

Now this week Vicky has set the challenge and along with using her sketch she wants us to use Faux Silk techique.  Now this is a great technique and one I haven’t used for a while.   To create my Faux Silk I stamped the large floral image from the Creative Elements stampset onto tissue paper using Wild Wasabi ink.  The tissue paper needs to be larger than the card stock you want to attach it too.   Once you have stamped the tissue paper you need to scrunch it up tightly and open it out again.  I cut Whisper White card stock and applied Glue Stick all over it.  Then you attach the tissue paper but do not smooth it out, you want to have all the crinkles and creases on the card stock.  Once the glue ha dried a little, I trimmed  the tissue paper even with the card stock.  I cut a strip of Wild Wasabi card stock and punched both long edges using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I attached a narrow strip of So Saffron card stock on top and then pierced three holes, using the Mat Pack and Paper Piercer.  I inserted Perfect Plum brads into the Filigree Brads and then through the pierced holes.  This piece was then attached to scored and folded Perfect Plum card stock.  I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Field Flowers stampset onto Whisper White card using Wild Wasabi ink and attached it to a Perfect Plum card stock mat.  This image panel was attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the “solid” large flower from the Field Flowers stamp set onto Whisper White card using Perfect Plum ink which I first stamped onto scrap Whisper White card stock.  Then I stamped the “outline” large flower over the top again using Perfect Plum ink and cut the flower out.  I attached the flower over the stem using SNAIL.   I stamped “celebrate” from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set onto Whisper White card stock using Wild Wasabi ink and punched it out using the Word Window punch.  I attached the greeting to a Perfect Plum Modern Label and then used dimensionals to attach to the card front.

This is a fun technique and a great way to create a textured background.  Ok, so now for some more inspiration visit Vicky and Shirley and then once you have your card, scrapbook page or 3D item then pop over to Sunny Challenges and Creations and add it to Mr. Linky.  As always I look forward to seeing your creations.

Bye for now, Kris.
