Z- fold card and Faux silk look


Hello!!

Today I'm sharing with you this awesome technique I saw at IBS blog by Leah...the faux silk technique. Here is my Z fold card using this technique..


 
Isn’t this gorgeous...this technique makes even the most bright pattern papers so pleasant to look at..I just loved it...I distressed the edges of paper as well..

 
 
I made this as a z fold card...keeping in mind the challenge at Masnsi’s blog diecuts and more...I so wanted to take part in one of her challenges since long...but things kept me busy...finally I'm am!!
 
 
 
 
 
 I still have to add a picture here...so left it blank for the time being...will update soon..
 
I also stamped on images and script on the paper to give that extra edge...the technique adds so much depth and texture to your paper. Its definitely worth the effort!!
I also used the gorgeous crochet trim to add texture
Adding this card to-
DCAM challenges- interactive cards  - I made a z fold card
Beyond grey challenges-shaped projects with garden twist- I used the roses theme here...with white Victorian look as I have a garden just like this one...roses and dasies..my inspiration is the roses and I have incorporated it in the designs as well as the pattern paper...also the  white and Victorian look...
 Hope you like it..
Hugs

Thinking Of You...

 

Hello friends!
Here is a card I made yesterday...love these colours together so gave it a try..
( updated the post today with new pics..sorry for the bad pictures I had earlier.)
 
 
 


I used a lot of glitter balls and liquid glitter with pearl paint... also used some diamond dust but I don't think its visible in the pics...
 
 
 
 




 The embossed paper is distressed on the reverse side. I also used the beautiful crochet trim and a ribbon...the crochet trim was white originally and I used some tea water to die it...
