Jackie K Here Joining in the Fun!

My contribution to the Technique of the Week! The Faux Silk Designer Paper Technique
from the most recent newsletter!

 My designer paper is from the So-So Sweet collection from the Paper Studio.The "Happy Birthday" stamp is from Stampabilities. The die cut is from Spellbinders; Lattice Rectangles.
With so many of these background type techniques, I find myself so reluctant to cover up the beautiful results. I keep it simple just for that reason. As Tricia mentioned in her post, (wasn't her card gorgeous?) it is a shame you can't see the shimmer. A word of advice however, use a lightly colored pearlized spray. If it is too dark, the paper won't show through. I used a pale pink but still had to blot it a bit. Now that I am looking at the photo, you can't really see the fine wrinkles of the tissue paper either. I think I need to take a beginner photography course LOL!
Give this technique a go won't you? You won't regret it!
