Faux Silk World of Dreams

I can't stop thinking of techniques to use with the World of Dreams stamp set!

The orchid image is coloured with markers and stamped on a mat covered with crumpled gift tissue. The effect is a bit like hand-painted silk.

You can find the recipe for the gold mist on the Rose Red mat below.












-adhere a piece of Transfer Adhesive Sheet to a white card stock mat
-crumple a piece of gift tissue and smooth slightly
-peel away the backing of the adhesive sheet and a cover with the crumpled tissue

-ink the stamp with a Pink Pirouette pad
-colour the edges of the flowers with a Blushing Bride marker
-colour a star shape in the centres of the flowers with a Crushed Curry marker
-colour dots in the centres of the flowers with a Melon Mambo marker
-colour the stems with an Old Olive marker
-huff on the stamp to moisten the inks before stamping on the mat




-let the inks dry
-if the colours need softening, gently dab an Aqua Painter in the centres
-if the colours are too light, gently colour with a marker
-use the Big Shot with a Window Frames framelit to cut the mat
-stamp the sentiment with a Gold Encore pad
-use a sponge dauber to add Gold ink to the edges of the mat





-place the Rose Red card stock mat in a spritzing box (mine is made from a box cut in half diagonally)









-fill a Stampin' Sprizter with 70% Rubbing Alcohol
-add a squirt of Gold Encore ink from a refill bottle
-screw on the top and shake
-spritz on the Rose Red mat
-stamp splatter image from Gorgeous Grunge with a Gold Encore pad
