I decribe in brief how to do the faux silk technique on a previous post. For this one, I used my new Pretty Petals background stamp and inked it using Stampin' Up markers. Once inked, I huffed my breath over the inked stamp before stamping it on my tissue paper to re-moisten the ink. The base of my card is made with kraft cardstock (I've been using that a lot lately). I also used purely pomegranate, groovy guava, and whisper white cardstock. The "thank you" is done with one of the new rub-on's from Stampin' Up. Of course, the background stamp was also used on the kraft paper, but done in Versamark ink for a subtle look.
The bookmark was made with the same colours and techniques. I used a jumbo eyelet at the top to put the bravo burgandy and double stitched groovy guava grosgrain ribbon through. The "happiness" was stamped using my ABC lower alphabet set and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Hope you like my card and bookmark!
