Baby Pink Silk

It's a new month and it's Tuesday so here's a new challenge for you from the DT at Technique Time Tuesday. It's called Faux silk and it is really easy and fun to do.  There is an easy to follow video tutorial here and you can use it with a whole range of styles, as you will see from the DT samples.  I chose clean and simple ( no surprise there then!) and a baby card.  Here are a couple of pictures

I used the faux silk technique to create the banners, using the pennant Punch, I really like the crinkly look you get with this effect.  I stamped the gold butterflies and added a twine ribbon. I always think that these Swiss dots, embossed, are perfect for a baby card, and the 'Congratulations' is from Sassy Salutations.
Four little baby pink gems,a 'baby' pennant and a baby pink mat complete my card.


  1. This is brilliant, Louise! I adore the use of the faux silk pieces to create a banner!!! They really look like fabric, too! HUGS and have a great rest of your week! :) Mynn xx

  2. This is so cute Louise and perfect for a new baby girl! Love the crinkled silk look for a banner and the twine to tie it up. Hope you've been enjoying the holidays - I can never quite get my head round how hectic life is in the summer! Vicky x

  3. This is such a pretty card! I love how you used the technique for the banners-so clever! I love banners too so I may be scraplifting this idea! ;)


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
