1.0 Sarah's Stamping Style: Faux Silk

Faux Silk

I saw the faux silk technique and this beautiful card over at Mamma Mo Stamps. I just had to replicate it, as it was so beautiful. Making a few changes, I made this card for my mum for Mother's Day.

I used Pretty in Pink and Early Espresso card stock. The background stamp is the same one that Maureen used, I love it! It is the cherry blossoms branch from the Easter Blossoms set. I think Maureen may have put white card stock behind her tissue paper, but I liked the pink showing through. I used pearls on my card and added the pearl brad to the bow. I coloured the flowers in with a Pretty in Pink marker, which isn't really visible in this photo. The sentiment is from Well Scripted and was punched with the new decorative label punch in the Autumn-Winter Mini.

Here is a close up of the detail:

I decorated the inside quite simply, repeating the cherry blossom branch, the Scallop Trim border and a few pearls.

I hope all of the Mothers out there had a lovely Mother's Day.
