How Ya Been?

At our last Prettie Pajama Party, one of the challenges was to use a technique that we had never tried before. For me, it was the Faux Silk Technique. I have ALWAYS loved the look of it, but never tried it. I added one little step in mine by stamping on the cardstock as well as on the tissue paper. Kind of a neat effect, no? I used the Look Who's Perky set from Paper Pretties. Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Look Who's Perky (Paper Pretties); Paper- Pink Pirouette, Basic Black, Regal Rose (SU), white (Georgia-Pacific), tissue paper; Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Whisper White Craft (SU); Accessories- Copic markers, circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder (Provocraft), wide Regal Rose grosgrain (SU), brads (Making Memories); Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"
