faux silk?

I'm not sure this technique looks like faux silk, but I adore it anyway. Basically, you stamp, cover image with glue and press crumpled tissue paper on it. I'm not a fan of glue as it leaves the c/s a bit wonky, but I liked this one anyway. (and don't say, "just iron it" 'cause I don't iron. lol)

I'll never understand how this is supposed to look like silk (on any card), but OMG, I love this card! I'm so happy you're at it again!

I think this looks great!

I love this technique and I love the way it turns out. This is a really pretty card. It turned out perfect.

Ditto on the silk thing Karie.
