Vintage with faux -silk Technique


Hello Friends !! How are you all ? My blog has been quiet for a while as I am not crafting much this month.I have a card to share today.

I have stained the tissue with coffee concoction ,crumpled the tissue and glued it to card base to achieve the faux-silk look.For the three panels I wrote some script on coffee stained tissue and then used them.Added a layer of corrugated cardboard piece stained with coffee.

I drew the bird very gently on tissue and colored lightly with water color pencils and then glued it on a base .After the glue was completely dry I colored it again( shading n detailing ) and paper pieced it.

Similarly for the tree trunk n leaves I colored the tissue first glued it to base n the cut the shape.Almost everything on this card except for corrugated piece is faux-silk.I am not much fond of brown and so find it difficult to work with this color. Do tell me if you like my attempt !

Whats reused here ?
I have used paper from invite(plane side)from my stash as base for panels ,bird ,tree trunk n leaves.The cream colored paper is also from invite and the corrugated piece is striped off from packaging.

  24. This is just lovely Pooja! Thanks for accepting my invitation to submit your designs to our challenge! This project is so full of wonderful technique and pristine execution. Achieving the faux silk look takes as good eye and the ability to edit oneself. This design shows great restraint and deliberate thought. Using your own handwriting lends a unique character to to project and elevates it. Adding corrugated cardboard, grounds the design because the hardness of the cardboard plays well against the softness of the "silk" and the beautiful muted colors. I am a huge fan of brown and use it often in my projects. This is a testament to the strength of that color! Thanks so much for leaving this on our front porch here at 613 Avenue Create! We hope you will become a regular visitor to our neighborhood.
