This little swatch is a preview of a card at camp this month, using the Faux Silk technique. I love it, but we haven’t used it for a long time. So, because of my Fabric Fusion theme in March, I thought it was time again.
New to Faux Silk? I wrote a little tutorial HERE, in case you need to read up on the technique (or practice!). This time, instead of using a Xyron for an even application of adhesive, we’re using a product new to me: Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets. I saw these demonstrated at Leadership Conference in January and put them on my first order after returning home. Even so, I was uncertain how they would perform — would the stickiness be difficult to control? — but they are a dream to work with. And very affordable, I think.
I’ll show you the complete card some other time. Meanwhile, get out that tissue paper!
